git tells me they're the same on the source tree, and diff -ru after a
dpkg-deb -x also told me they're the same on the binary debs...
debdiff told me they differ on the source package, but I haven't managed
to find out why. I decided to trust dpkg-deb + diff on the generated
For the record, this was the first time something like this happened,
but this was also the first time I tried debdiff from devscripts
2.19.5~bpo9+1. And it also told me the data on the older packages also
differed -- but they went through older versions of debdiff just fine!
-- so I went with "this release of debdiff seems broken".
