There are two problems I'd like to ask:

1.Do you intend to upload this version to unstable or experimental?
It'll be very hard to have it go into testing, so if you are not sure
please consider using experimental.

2.If dfsg1 wasn't published in Debian main archive, you are supposed
to stick to use dfsg1 no matter how many times did you repack the
source code beforehand.
