[Pkg-rust-maintainers] Uploading to unstable, and git tweaks

Hi all,

I uploaded 1.15.1 to unstable so that we have something to build 1.16 with. If it turns out that there are RC bugs we need to fix with 1.14, there is an undocumented "testing-proposed-updates" mechanism that the release team can use (but doesn't like using).

I also updated the git layout to match, the old {master, upstream} branches are gone, they have been replaced with {debian/experimental, upstream/experimental, debian/sid, upstream/sid}.

When you run "git pull" you probably need to give "--prune" otherwise the command might fail. Also when running "gbp buildpackage" you might need to give the "--git-upstream-branch=<BRANCH>" option. There is a way to make this automatic, by setting some stuff in debian/gbp.conf, but I didn't yet have time to figure this out.

We should keep {upstream/experimental, upstream/sid} as a linear history, but the {debian/experimental, debian/sid} ones might fork - they already are, actually, since Sylvestre already prepared 1.16.

I'll have unreliable access to e-mail in the next week or so, but I should be available on-and-off on IRC, and I'll keep an eye out on this mailing list's archives.

(Sorry in advance if this was "jumping the gun" a little, I thought given the little activity here compared to the huge amount of work needed, it was better to "be bold" and push things forward.)
