Dear MOTUs,
I have a question which I do not understand from the manual from:

I would like to create a package for the code at:

I would like to
1) bzr branch
2) update debian/changelog (maybe automatically)
3) and then package and upload.

But the above mentioned guide requires to have a source tarball.

Is there a way to package without a source tarball but with a source branch?

Thanks in advance,
