OK, so you did..:-)

Now, we have another problem. The master branch is about packaging new
"upstream" 4.2. However, pristine-tar and upstream branches are still
imports from the Debian package and, therefore, are

So, someone needs to "release" a 4.2 tarball....and the only place to
do this from is, if I'm correct, the master branch : in short,
dropping debian/ and .git/ from there, cook up a tarball, call it 4.2
and then import it into upstream and pristine-tar.

Is there a cleaner way to do this?
