Hi Gregor.

No worries.

Is this the same code as on git.debian.org?

OK.  The most important part to review before uploading is
debian/copyright.  Errors there will block the package from entering
Debian.  All other errors can be fixed when the package is in unstable. :)

It did seem quite complicated.  Some of it could be made easier by
adding a debian/gpb.conf file, and some of it could perhaps be made
easier by using gbp import-orig.  Why do you use release branches?  I
normally do not.

Btw, you might find this look useful to include in your README:

  while quilt push ; do quilt refresh; done

It will refresh all patches unless one of them cause a problem.

Happy hacking
