Hi Martin.  Here's my process for creating a backport from an existing pkg-go repository.  I
might be able to get some help to do this for the ~160 packages if you are willing to do
the uploads.

$ git clone $REPO
$ git checkout -b debian/sid # initial branch is master
$ git checkout -b debian/jessie-backports
$ vi debian/gbp.conf # create new or update existing file
pristine-tar = True
debian-branch = debian/sid
upstream-branch = master
$ dch -i
[Create new changelog entry with jessie-backports suite and ~bpo8+1 version suffix]
$ git commit debian/changelog -m "Upload to backports"
$ git tag debian/$VERSION~bpo+1
$ git push origin --tags master debian/sid debian/jessie-backports

I'm not sure whether you want to delete the master branch and set debian-branch to
debian/sid.  I think this is what you have done in some of the other pkg-go repos you
are maintainer for.  Happy to go with whatever you think is right.

What do you think?
