comment Include Binary Files in DEB package
Right. That guide is more concerned with packaging for the official Ubuntu archives, and in that case you'd want the proper upstream tarball. You don't need to use --split again as the created tarball is still around. If you delete it, you'll need to do that again.

Well I have a whole different answer, but you should still learn about dget =) The dsc file contains all the information about the other parts of the source package. So dget will grab everything and extract it correctly if you give it a link to the dsc file. dget -ux http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main/r/rhythmbox/rhythmbox_3.0.3-1.dsc

Take a look at the dget command from the devscripts package. It'll simplify this quite a bit.

What release are you on? It sure looks like it has 1.9.2 to me: launchpad.net/~git-core/+archive/ppa
