recipe build error "Could not be uploaded correctly"

Asked by Mantas Kriaučiūnas on 2011-11-17

I've created recipe to build newest xine-lib from Debian, but when I request a build I get an error:
 "Could not be uploaded correctly"

I get this error message into my mailbox:

From the logs:

dpkg-genchanges: not including original source code in upload

You can work around this by:

* trimming the cangelog (so yours is the first entry to mention 1.1.20) and hardcoding the upstream version
* changing your package to use "3.0 (native)" rather than "3.0 (quilt)"

Arguably launchpad should also always just upload the source tarball, I'll file a bug about that.

To include original source code in upload use -sa flag:
debuild -S -sa

Can you help with this problem?
