here is the probably cleanest solution:
* Convince upstream to include the non-minified files in the released
tarball as well, as extra-source-files so that they are not installed
for users of the cabal package. Then you don’t need to repack it at
* Find out what tool minimizes the files. At build time, run this tool
to regenerate the minimized files, and use these.
* If the previous point is not possible or not reasonable (maybe the
tool is not available on all architectures, or just inconvenient to
run), convince yourself that the minimized files are indeed generated
from the given source files.
If you don’t want to wait for upstream to do a new release, then I guess
adding a file to the upstream tarball when repacking is fine. If you
don’t like that, then remove the minimized file and put the source file
in debian/ instead.
