Yes, I'll create the repositories at salsa after we'll agree on the
migration procedure.

Very nice work!

But there's a few things to do yet:

1) Only the latest upstream version is imported into the repository
(0.9.0 in this particular case)
which is not ideal. It would be nice to be able to recreate any
packaged version from the repository.

2) I'd prefer to use the approach with a pristine-tar branch. If we
have the full sources tree in the
repository then why can't we recreate the upstream tarballs as well?

Looks like tags are converted just fine, but I don't know what would
be with branches (tdom doesn't have them, one can try to convert
tcllib with pretty simple branch structure - there were two branches
for security upgrades, one for experiments, and another one called
'upstream', hehe).
