Package for libquoin-clojure

If I'm not mistaken, Java libraries are distributed under the libXXX-java
name. I think it would be ideal to follow this convention for binary
packages as well, is clear enough to tell that a package is a binary
clojure program by just looking at the package name (libfoo-clojure). For
source packages UPSTREAMNAME-clojure looks sane enough (my opinion).

Yesterday I tried to find out how exactly I'm supposed to use git for new
upstream packages. I was apparently doing things right except that I didn't
have pristine-tar enabled so git-import-orig didn't create the branch. On
#debian-mentors they suggested I could clone upstream, create the tar file
and then use git-import-orig, which is what I had initially (but this time
with pristine-tar). I thought it would be possible to clone from upstream
and work directly on that, but I think exporting and importing is easier.
What do you do? Do you create the tar manually and import or clone and
create a branch for the debian patch?. I started to repackage scout
properly (I think), I'll keep you posted on that.
