Hello everyone,

I'm still exploring the capacities of git-dpm and I have some doubts on the
workflow that I intend to use. Sorry of the long email.

All my upstream commits and debian specific work ends up in my MASTER branch.
I branch out to dev & then rebase or merge. Right now, git-dpm is not used on
that project so the quilt patches are versioned under git.

I was thinking of using "packaging branches" that would hold the git-dpm
history. Something like  :

 $ git checkout master
 $ git checkout -b debian/1.5.7-1
 $ git-dpm init ../tmp/{project}_1.5.7.orig.tar.gz debian/1.5.7-1

My concern is what to do with my debian specific changes that live in MASTER
when I need to bring them in the package ? Just cherry-pick them in the
"packaging branch" ?

Then what if git-dpm creates a quilt patch in one packaging branch : how
should I keep track of this patch in the MASTER branch ? Or should I ?

The intent is to keep the history of the packaging separate from the main
debian development branch but also have the patches in the MASTER branch which
is published.

Does it all make sense or I'm making this too complicated and should simply
apply git-dpm on MASTER ?

Kind regards,

...Louis
