This is not exactly how I see an NMU. In an NMU, the NMUer doesn't
really *have* to cope with the VCS practices of the
maintainer(s). Imagine: I could very well be reluctant to use git...or
ignorant about it (and not wanting to learn about it just for an NMU),
The real NMU I would have done would have been the exact way it is
recommended by the Policy: start from the package in the archive,
apply the changes I intend to have incorporated, then send the NMU
patch to the maintainer and build the package the way.....I want to
build the package. Then upload (to DELAYED/<foo>)
Building from your GIT repo would mean that I take responsibility for
other changes that could be pending there....not to mention that I
have to learn about *your* way to use git.
In any case, this didn't have to happen as you uploaded (and I think
it's a much better way to fix things....I'm really sorry that you felt
pressured about this upload but, when it comes at stuff I care about,
it was time to do it).
