Sounds great.

I'll try it out for a bit - I fear mixing git and darcs will be confusing and we'll lose the elegance of the darcs-buildpackage tools, but I'll have a look :).

Last time I had a look at jack-tools, it contained several different upstream tarballs from different upstream "projects".

If there'd be an "update all via darcs", this would be handy.

Upstream doesn't seem to supply any releases at all anymore, it's now simply a Darcs repo with all the tools in it. Which works great.

I would be able to help out in maintaining this if done using git.

I would *not* feel comfortable helping out if using Darcs.

That said, my voice may be irrelevant if not using CDBS as well, due to my drastic standpoint regarding that and short-form dh. The reason I voice my concern regarding VCS anyway is that I suspect it (disregarding CDBS) is shared with fellow Debian Multimedia developers.

Kind regards,
