So debian-sid will be the branch with the debian package schema and
upstream-sid the branch with the upstream code, right? You upload
master-sid, that is the same debian-sid?

I just try to build php-timer on a squeeze pbuilder but it fails: Needs
the pkg-php-tools package that is not on stable but on backports, i will
check it again later. Also i didn't create *squeeze branches yet.

Corrected (for this package)

There is also a [1]bug regarding that, but i couldn't check
pkg-php-tools code yet. And i think my perl-foo is not enought to make
that change easily. That's why i shipped the package with some overrides
