Its for convenience if somebody wants to install from latest svn.

ACK. At least debian maintainers are responsible for the content of the 
official Debian package, and upstream maintainers are responsible for 
the tarball.
The cooperation of debian maintainers and drbd-dev in the past, with 
copying ideas and code in both directions had advantages.
I would like to keep it.
