Nevermind, happens :)
FTR, I tend to clean up my local repository as soon as I'm done with
that build, as way too often happens to leave something there to me.

mh, no.

There is already one in bpo-NEW from 2 days ago :)

So, I'm going to use a local bpo of sndio instead (also because yours
would not be nice to upload due to the +2.  why 2 identical changelog
entries??), and try to build audacious again.  Tomorrow first thing in
the morning most probably.

actually --detach shouldn't be needed at all, and I can't really see
what --rebase would do here (also because it's not even in

Now, umh, with `push debian/%(bpo_tag)s would be what I usually do
without a branch.

given that now a branch is used instead the workflow is:

git checkout jessie-backports               # enter the bpo branch
git merge debian/version-revision           # merge changes since last bpo
                                            # this might lead to
                                            # conflicts in changelog, but
                                            # nothing impossible.
dch --bpo                                   # update changelog
gbp buildpackage --git-tag                  # build+tag
git status
git add                                     # same as above
git push                                    # push the current branch
git push --tags                             # push the tag
