Hi Roberto,

I definitely knew I had overlooked something, just that I didn't know what
exactly :)

I tried to fix it on the working tree, as follows:

$ cd ~/bibletime/bibletime
$ gbp import-dsc --create-missing-branches --pristine-tar
--allow-same-version ../bibletime_*.dsc

The result was different from what was expected:

gbp:warning: Version 2.11.0-1 already imported.
gbp:info: Moving tag of version '2.11.0-1' since import forced
gbp:error: Git command failed: Failed to ls-tree 'upstream': 'fatal: Not a
valid object name upstream

Then doing
$ git branch
* master

So something is going on here, and I don't know what it is, it fails with
an error.

I now have zipped up the whole working tree, including the repository and
all bibletime files and debian stuff.
It is here:

Would you know what to do to get this fixed?
