Ok, I went with git-import-dsc since I've had these packages around for
a while in launchpad. The git-buildpackage tools are much easier, I
wish I'd seen that before :).
I deleted pd-motex.git and I uploaded it again. My only question is the
debian version is currently -0.0. Is that a problem? I figure it can
be bumped to -1 by whoever becomes the 'official' sponsor.
