Fwd: [PPA olebole-astro] xpa_2.1.13-0~ubuntu2_source.changes rejected


Dear list,

I just tried to upload a source package, and got the error message shown
below. The package compiles fine under Ubuntu on my own machine as well
as in an pbuilder environment.

Unfortunately, the rejection message isn't helpful here: I found the
return value 9 not explained in dpgk-source (1), and I also dont
understand the output lines: dpkg-source tries to apply only two
patches, while I have a third one (install_tclxpa.patch) in
debian/patches/series. All three patches apply cleanly on the plain orig
tar file.

What is wrong here?

The source can be found under


and I'd appreciate any help here.

Best regards
