Hi Jeremy,

sorry for the long delay.

And this isn't bad, you can develop your software the way you prefer,
however the packaging should be reviewed through our git repository.

I have asked you to remove the debian directory at least from the
release tarballs just to save some KiBs.

There wouldn't be any particular problem for me. A good workflow may be:

 1. Work on upstream side by committing the changes into a new
upstream.trunk branch.
 2. Once the sources are ready to be released:
   a. Merge "upstream.trunk" into "upstream" and tag the latter
properly ("upstream/%(version)s").
   b. Prepare an orig.tar.gz, commit it into the pristine-tar branch
   c. Merge upstream into master.

I fail to catch the point: what does "intermediate packaging work" mean?

There would no need to set up such a sync if you follow that workflow
I drafted above.

You'd just need to have an account on Alioth and join the team.
