yes, .tar.bz2 works fine for 6.06, 7.04, 8.04.
It would be nice if you fix this regression.
I got on the other hand the answer from some ubuntu packagers that
.tar.bz2 will not be accepted by the public build instances for debia or
ubuntu, so it has a good reason that dpkg-source is crying about not
allowed .tar.bz2. I switced back to .tar.gz for my combi .deb and .rpm
What I say is valid for at least:
- Debian Lenny, Sid
- Ubuntu: 7.10, 8.04, 8.10, 9.04
As far as I know the build service automatically repackages the .tar.bz2
that I give into a .tar.gz file before the build. Like I said AFAIK it
does that for all debs except 8.10.
So I'm waiting that the openSUSE people fix this bug.
