      Description

      Some comments from the Debian side (please share them accordingly).

      pegasus-source-4.8.0.tar.gz
      - contains a full copy of .git/ (making the tarball 2.5 times the necessary size)
      - doesn't contain debian/changelog (but debian/changelog.in), and I cannot find
       a rule to create one
      - unpacks to pegasus-source-4.8.0 (I'd expect pegasus-4.8.0)

      A "stripped" source tarball can be extracted from pegasus-4.8.0.src.rpm
      - that doesn't have .git inside
      - that comes with a debian/changelog file (build version is -1+deb9, btw)
      - that still unpacks to pegasus-source-4.8.0

      So here's what I did:

      - fetch .src.rpm
      - extract .tar.gz (and ignore .spec)
      - rename to pegasus_4.8.0.orig.tar.gz
      - unpack, and rename directory to pegasus-4.8.0
      - edit debian/changelog so the first entry reads "pegasus (4.8.0-1)"
      - process the package similar to the LSCsoft ones (to create a deb8u0 and deb9u0 source package
       to be handled be the respective pbuilders)

      First attempt to build fails as docbook still is expected to come from the net -
      which is "verboten" for pbuilder. Also, a patch has still to be applied to avoid
      overwriting of debian/changelog.
