      Description

      How it was before:

      $ tar tzf qbs-src-1.18.0.tar.gz | head
      qbs-src-1.18.0/
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.clang-tidy
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.dockerignore
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/actions/
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/actions/download-qt/
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/actions/download-qt/action.yml
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/actions/download-qtc/
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/actions/download-qtc/action.yml
      qbs-src-1.18.0/.github/workflows/
      

      How it is now:

      $ tar tzf qbs-src-1.18.2.tar.gz | head
      ._qbs-src-1.18.2
      qbs-src-1.18.2/
      qbs-src-1.18.2/._docker
      qbs-src-1.18.2/docker/
      qbs-src-1.18.2/._CMakeLists.txt
      qbs-src-1.18.2/CMakeLists.txt
      qbs-src-1.18.2/._cmake
      qbs-src-1.18.2/cmake/
      qbs-src-1.18.2/._bin
      qbs-src-1.18.2/bin/
      

      The presence of additional ._qbs-src-1.18.2 file in the root level breaks Debian build scripts, as it makes them use that level as root directory and not qbs-src-1.18.2/ which should be root.

      These are “AppleDouble” files, and apparently you can use COPYFILE_DISABLE=1 environment variable to prevent tar from including them into archive. I do not use macOS so I cannot test that.
