I keep seeing these references to "development". Why is development
happening in the disto-specific packaging? If your "Developping",
shouldn't that all be in collaboration with upstream, and hence using
the upstream VCS, whatever-that-may-be-please-let-it-be-git...
I understand the need to have differences/patches to packages for
distro-specific reasons, and back-porting fixes of stuff upstream has
already fixed but that debian's not allows to use because of the strict
version-non-changing requirements... But why is "Development" happening
locally in the debian packages and not upstream?
Or am I mis-understanding the connotations of "development" in this
