i have a question on how the exclusion of files from the upstream tarball can be handled and maintained.
as far as i understand, you just use $ git-import-orig --filter="*proprietary*" /path/to/upstream_1.0.tar.gz which will exclude all files matching *proprietary* from the debian "upstream" tarball (what's the right terminology, btw?) this is all fine, but how is this maintained over time? e.g. next upstream release i have to do the same thing again. however, considering that we do a lot of packaging, how am i to keep track of all this? shouldn't all this exclusion be documented somewhere, e.g. in debian/README.source? fgasdrm IOhannes
