I am sorry but it does not help for a few reasons:
* We, in Debian, are doing several uploads of the same upstream version.
So, we always have to modify debian/
* Our tools are removing automatically debian/ in upstream tarballs
* They would have to be in rootDir/debian/, rootDir/contrib/debian would
not work.
* There are already the Debian packages which are a bit more complete
and tested than the one pushed ;)
