Hi Jonathan,
Thanks for updating the source. I hope you understand I appreciate
your work there before I say the next bit.

I might have missed it but I think it would be very helpful to
document what you do somewhere - maybe a debian/README.source file
would be appropriate?[1]

If it would be a helpful improvement, I think we should set it up to
have an upstream-xxx tag
Dimi, afaiu you have the sword and xiphos repos set up like that - do
you think the change would be worth it?

I don't know if there is a way to import an upstream branch with .just
the upstream source tagged as such.
Or would we have to delete the debian dir, tag as upstream then add
the debian dir back in?

Having said that, I would say that if it isn't broken, and changing
things isn't a useful improvement, then it doesn't need 'fixed'.


[1] Pots and kettles spring to mind, but let's just call it learning
from my mistakes ;)
