I don't have such a strong preference as it might have sounded.  I do
think it's important we choose to use one system for all packages.  And
if git-buildpackage works well, I'm in favor of using it.  So yes,
please write the instructions.  I'll want at least:
- How to create a new package
- How to change a package
- How to sponsor a package
- How to ask for a sponsor outside the team
- How to handle an externally sponsored package (meaning the sponsor
  didn't touch git).

I heard from several sides that git-buildpackage needs a repository per
package, but AFAIK we have only one at Alioth.  Is that not true, or is
there a solution?  (Yes, I use git, but only basic features.)
