(I really wish that I could bisect using 'git'. Does the 'audacity' upstream use 'git', or do the Debian maintainers have their own 'git' repo where they merge new versions from upstream? I am merely a beginner with tools such as 'git' and 'gdb', but I did spend a month debugging a kernel issue on LKML when kernel 2.6.26 was hanging during boot on two of my machines, so I believe I could bisect this if the sources were available via 'git'.)


Good point!

Never thought of this use before. In the future I will consider pulling in intermediate upstream versions too when updating upstream source - to help bisect. I believe in most cases it won't hurt size of our gits much.
