Hi Manuel, thanks a lot for the help!

I have a few beginners questions, plus a comment:

+$ git config user.name "John Doe"
+$ git config user.email "john at example.org"

  Could be git config user.name $DEBFULLNAME and git config user.email
  DEBEMAIL if these environment variables are advertised somewhere else.
  The advantage of it is that the lazy reader can cut-and-paste from the
  help ;)

+$ git import-orig --pristine-tar ~/foo_1.0.orig.tar.gz

  - Is there a configuration file that would allow --pristine-tar to be
    always passed as an option? I am affraid to forget it one day.
  - Is is possible to import the upstream sources in the disorder? (In
    separate commands, at separate times).

+$ git branch
+* master
+  pristine-tar
+  upstream

  Would a separate debian branch, that would only contain the debian
  directory, make any sense?

Have a nice day,
