These packages are packaged using standard Debian git-buildpackage
style.  That means that the upstream code is imported from release
tarballs, and the git master branch is all about the debian packaging. 
That's why this repo is not a fork of the upstream repo.

So if we decide to make primesense-kinect-sensor based off of your git
fork, then a release tarball would need to be imported using
git-import-orig. I'm thinking perhaps its a better idea if you make a
separate package of your fork.  I used the avin2 fork rather than the
offical repo for this package because it seems that the official sources
don't fully work.  It should be really easy to create a ros package
since the code is so close.  It could be something like
primesense-kinect-sensor-ros or whatever.
