I've read the page about Ubuntu Distributed Development. The
'traditional' way of making packages, for just now, is easier for me to
understand, since I can then see what happens under the hood.
As for merging upstream, the command $ bzr merge-upstream responds: bzr:
ERROR: unknown command "merge-upstream".
What was done is this: To just remove the data that is no longer in
bibledit-4.4.tar.gz, and add whatever is new by unpacking the tarball
into bzr, then commit and push the result.
Will make merge proposals in future, sorry I had overlooked that option.
