,ex are examples and they are not used unless you rename them to get rid
of the .ex extension.
You need to check the debian guide for that. They are documented :)

You'd better off running fakeroot debian/rules clean, cp -a debian /tmp
delete everything, unpack a new tarball and cp -a /tmp/debian <to the
dpkg-source is complaining about some binary files being deleted and
this can't be represented in the diff.gz file.
I'd actually download the tarball from the library homepage and rename
it to flickrapi_0.15.orig.tar.gz, unpack it and copy debian/ there
