I need to build a debian package for Squeeze of Django 1.4 to add to our local aptitude repository. I found a package here under Download Source Package python-django: [python-django_1.4-1.debian.tar.gz]. I'm trying to build using these instructions but I get this error:

dpkg-source: error: can't build with source format '3.0 (quilt)': no orig.tar file found
dpkg-buildpackage: error: dpkg-source -b django_deb gave error exit status 255

Maybe this is really easy but I have no experience building debian packages. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to continue or what I should do instead?

Someone had already added Django 1.4 to the repo since after I checked last time, a few weeks ago. If someone wants to answer with any great ideas your still welcome.
