So, looking at it more closely, I found out that the initial commit is
actually the upstream source, which means we can just branch from it for
the upstream branch.

While waiting for the workflow changes following DebConf17 BoF [0], I
guess the best is to be as standard as possible, even if it's a bit
painful in this case, since uscan doesn't allow arbitrary snapshots yet
[1] and upstream stopped doing releases ages ago. So I guess manual
snapshot and pristine-tar is the way to go.

Of course if you have upstream and pristine-tar branch locally it would
be great to push them ;)


I asked to join the pkg-go project on alioth, because I have a couple
commits ready locally for trivial nitpick, but I guess this package is
not far from upload, and I'm preparing an ITP for
golang-gopkg-lxc-go-lxc.v2-dev.

Would anyone mind rewieving / uploading ? Jonathan, are you still
working on this, or should I take over the ITP ?


Cheers,

nodens
