The first incarnations of my packanging effort for a project did not use git dpm. I therefore have a bunch of .dsc source repositories that I want to be my first commits. I am having trouble importing the first one after "git init".
If I startoff with a git-dpm import-tar the whole commit appears in a "detached head". but I can get around that by renaming the commit to be "upstream" and it is not lost any more. The problem happens when I do a "git-dpm import-dsc". It always complains that master does not exist. If I get around that by doing an empty commit first with --allow-empty, then it complains that debian/.git-dpm does not exist. git-dpm import-dsc -b master --patch-system history ../debian145/peless_1.145-1.dsc git-dpm: ERROR: master does not exists, but upstream does. import-dsc does not know that this means. or pelliott@hrnowl:~/develop/debian/peless.git-dpm$ git-dpm import-dsc --patch-system history ../debian145/peless_1.145-1.dsc git-dpm: ERROR: Missing file debian/.git-dpm What is the correct way to import a tar.gz and a .dsc into git-dpm after a "git init"?
