I have been attempting to add Debian/Ubuntu packages to my repertoire of bleeding-edge (updated usually within 12 hours of the latest upstream release becoming available) Vim packages that I build in the OBS. For the packaging files I am presently trying to use see https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:fusion809/vim-debian, specifically revision 1 (as I will no doubt update this later when I either figure out a solution or after you’s provide me with one). The problem is that my live logs are telling me that the OBS is having trouble determining which is the tarball for the upstream source (which is meant to be vim_8.0.0402.orig.tar.gz) and which is meant to be the Debian packaging files tarball (which is meant to be vim_8.0.0402-1.debian.tar.gz). If you are wondering why I am keeping my changelog outside the Debian packaging tarball it’s to make it easier for me to update it in the future as when a new release comes out the packaging file I always have to update is the changelog. The other Debian packaging files only rarely have to be updated. Does anyone know I am meant to clarify this issue for the OBS? Here is the exact error message I am presently getting, in case you’re wondering if I interpreted it right:

Thanks for your time,
