bug in dh_make or something I did ? I want to learn making deb files so
plz help. :)

I followed this guide:


dh_make -e kristof.vansant at pandora.be -f ../drivel-1.2.1.tar.bz2  

drivel_1.2.1.orig.tar.gz is created (but uses bz2 compression)

result: dpkg-source will faill because it tries to unpack the file with
gzip while it uses bz2.
