None that I know of. It'll be hard to come up with statistics here,
since topgit is neither a build-dependency, nor a special Vcs-*
class.

master is the Debianisation branch which provides ./debian/. All
changes to ./debian/ are done there. It is not serialised,
obviously, but serves as the base for build (it's merged into build
for each new release) and then the patches are modified and
committed.

build holds the actual source from which the package was built.
master holds the development line for ./debian/
