Bug Description

About page 6: http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/packaging-new-software.html

I used the guide for some packages, but made always one mistake because something non-obvious is missing.

bzr dh-make creates the file source/format for you but doesnt add it to the bzr repo. Unfortunatally the simple packages (like the hello thing, and other simple ones) build perfectly. Especially if there are no patches needed (so tyou basically don't need quilt).

Everything works fine: commiting, pushing, building, upload to PPA, linthian. No errors anywhere. Only the first reviewer notices that the file is missing.

I'm not really sure how to attach a patch, but my merge request over here https://code.launchpad.net/~sethj/ubuntu-packaging-guide/lp1313053/+merge/236766 *should* be all that is needed, afaict.
