Hello there!

This branch fixes a shortcoming of pristine-tar's gendelta command: when there are files present in the tarball but missing in the unpacked local tree it happily creates the delta as opposed to aborting.

The real problem here is that a subsequent gentar command will fail since files referenced in the generated delta are missing from the local tree.

Please see also bug #424451.
