No problem. I think we all experience the emotions you expressed from
time to time. The GPL can be a cruel lover! The situation is that
Debian is a technically excellent and flexibility which is great for
A couple of months ago your packaging systems was pretty new.... and
confusing. Yesterday I was able to build test packages for GnewSense
and Ubuntu. Pretty Cool.

This what I was trying to ask, if rather unclearly. Downstream
projects will require minor modification of your /Debian dir to
accommodate different policies, build tools, and distro dependency
I am wondering, since we are creating fresh downstream package with a
new build-tool, how can we create a useful work flow for both upstream
and downstream. With down streams using git-buildpackage and cdbs, it
seems pretty straight forward to ensure that useful patches make it
back to git.debian.org.
