The Source: field is defined as the source package in the package
archive from which a binary packages are built. As deb-pkg does not
generate a source package, we should avoid to use any existing source
packages here.

I still have strong objections to "linux-2.6".
IMO "linux-upstream" is a good compromise: it's clear and avoids both
Debian's "linux-2.6" and Ubuntu's "linux".

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kbuild" in
the body of a message to majordomo@vger.kernel.org
