I am advocating that the Debian Python teams switch to git-dpm[*]. git-dpm itself has an import-dsc command that includes a --ptc switch to create the pristine-tar branch. It works great. I also have a script which can be used to bootstrap a git-dpm repo for a package that has a history of uploads to Debian. This works great if you don't care about all the intermediate commits, such as you might get out of a DPMT svn tree, but only care about the history of uploads. I've used this to convert a few test packages from svn to git-dpm, and if we do end up choosing git-dpm, it might serve as the tool to effect a mass conversion. In any case: ssh://ba...@git.debian.org/~barry/public_git/import-dscs.git Cheers, -Barry [*] This is not official team policy, just my personal preference atm.
