Oh, I had accidentally pressed reply. This page tries to explain the
difference between native and non-native packages:

The basic difference is that in non-native packages we have a upstream
source tarball and tizen-specific source code changes as patches on top of
that. In native packages we don't have patches - just create a tarball
from the tip of the git branch.

Basically yes. The tizen branch would to be replaced with the new "orphan"
