Bug Description

Using merge-upstream it repacks .bz2 into a .orig.tar.gz when using source format 3.0

bzr branch ubuntu:maverick/libindicate-qt
cd libindicate-qt/
bzr merge-upstream http://launchpad.net/libindicate-qt/libindicate-0.5/0.2.5.91/+download/libindicate-qt-0.2.5.91.tar.bz2 --version 0.2.5.91

will result in libindicate-qt_0.2.5.91.orig.tar.gz

If you add --v3 does it skip the repack?

If so then I guess it's just another place to look at
debian/source/format?

Thanks,
