See the thread with subject "0.7.5 release tomorrow..." around 2004-10-06.

The convenient way is to do "make tarball" before "dpkg-buildpackage 
..." and "make-kpkg ...". And I never really understood the 
module-assistant, even after nearly a day of studying the docs. Same is 
true for the newer packaging stuff.

So, what's easier:

1) change and test the drbd/make plus writing a new "HOWTO build debian 
packages from SVN/tarball", and test the HOWTO under different conditions.


2) rm debian/  by debian maintainers
