2. DEBIAN.* FILES: I have to separately map each of the files in my

would be great to indicate to debtransforn that a particular directory

provide the .dsc file, not the debian.{rules,control} files, etc.

I have included debian/ in the tarball. I only extract a dummy file
to trigger a debtransform run as well as the changelog, so that debtransform
can update
I would still allow me to add/update file in the debian/ directory, if I just
futher debian.* files.

Thanks Martin and Jan for your help and examples.

The result is a vast improvement over what I started with.

All the best,
