Hi Jonas and Alessio,

I was concerned about the extra commits in the git repository firing off
messages, but I realize it's probably only certain branches triggering this.

Alessio, in the workflow you described, the upstream.trunk branch is what I
was referring to as "intermediate packaging work"

I have an account on alioth (jeremysalwen-guest) and I requested to join the
team a little while ago, but I haven't been accepted yet.

as for

tarballs just to save some KiBs.

I wasn't aware the dir was included.  I'll try to fix that in the future.

I'll try to set up the git repositories properly once I have a change.
There's this project I'm working on that I'm really pushing to finish right
now, so I'll probably be inactive for a few more days.
