This conflicts happened because upstream now *removed* its debian/
directory. git notices this and tries to apply this change to
'master'. This is of course wrong and needs to be undone:

$ git merge upstream
$ git reset master debian/

this resets all files under the directory debian to the state that was
previously in master.

moreover, I've switched to package to source format 3.0 (quilt), so that
we can properly handle orig.tar.bz2 tarballs. Bug #566993 is a bit
annoying here, but can be avoided by mentioning that explicitly in
