Default Bug#687419: devscripts: Enabling uscan to choose compression method when repackaging upstream source

Package: devscripts
Version: 2.10.69+squeeze2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


as it was requested on debian-devel (for instance in[1]) an option to
influence the compression method when a repackaging is done by uscan
(either by using --repack option or when regarding the Files-Excluded
field in debian/copyright - provided the patch for bug #685787 will be
accepted) is nice to have. I submitted a patch to do this in the Git
repository where I also maintain the code for #685787. The actual
commit can be found here:

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=users/tille/devscripts.git;a=commitdiff;h=4529b0d3b6e42ba0d693 1d04e276fa419fcef658

I have tested this on several packages from Debian Med repository
successfully. Please feel free to cherry pick from the Git repository.
Any further testing is welcome.

Kind regards
