actually the debian stuff is going to come out of the release tarball, but I forgot to take it out.
As far as the “changelog”, believe it or not, the osx tar program changes the case on it. I think it might be trying to be helpful or something, but it really isn’t. The better question is why don’t the dh programs try both?
I did notice those problems, obviously, as that’s how I generated the .deb. But I had already uploaded the tarball, and would have had to wait 24 hours for it to drop out of the incoming directory on sf, so to fix it would have cost me 24 hours.
So I didn’t.
