Hi everyone, I just checked in what I have so far. Not much, and I'm not very 
happy with it. The more documentation one writes on packaging one Git the 
trickier it gets since there are so many paths one could take to reach the 

One of the key question for example is wheter one keeps a long-living 
integration branch or not. I think it's a good idea to do so. However, I'm 
not so sure if others prefer temporary branches.

As well, one could use use "master/debian" as integration branch or a 
different one that integrates feature branches and the debian branch. I do 
not see much in point in doing so but maybe I'm just missing something here.

Since documenting these techniques probably influences those who switch from 
SVN to Git, we should IMHO document the best practices. So I'm hoping for 
your feedback and/or comments on which method you use if you already do 
maintainance in Git.

Best regards
