As others already said, most projects want to do additional things than
just to tar the files from arch, so it's not worth automation. But noone
seem to have mentioned the use of tla inventory command. You probably
want to use it in generating the list of files to export.

By the way, there IS a package to help maintaining debian packages in
tla -- tla-buildpackage (but having an upstream subproject with clean
sources might actualy be simpler).
