Hey Josh,

If you have some time yourself, feel free to push directly to the repo and ping us again once you have something to upload.


It *looks* like that repo is structured like how gbp-buildpackage does it, plus with some DEP-14-like layout:


If what I said is inaccurate, perhaps Luca can chime in to correct me.

If you have trouble with gbp-buildpackage, just ask here or on IRC.

This weekend I'll try to fix/selectively-ignore the armhf test failures and do another upload of 1.15.1.
