As far as I know, there is no way with topgit to extract/flatten the patch series as it was at some point in history. Therefore, it is impossible to extract debian/patches/* files from the feature branches for an earlier version, which is why I keep them in files in the build branch. > > build holds the actual source from which the package was built. > > master holds the development line for ./debian/ > > Imagine I agree on the purpose of the two branches "build" and > "master".

If git-buildpackage expects master, then it is inflexible; you should be able to tell it to build from build. Anyway, I can see arguments for your proposal, mainly that the default gitweb branch shown is master, and that's what makes sense to have on git.debian.org, right? Anyway, this is really just cosmetic... > BTW, have you considered collaborating with Guido Günther to make > git-buildpackage work better with topgit? I don't have the time, and I have yet to be convinced of git-buildpackage. I am happy to support anyone who tries though. -- .''`. martin f. krafft <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> : :' : proud Debian developer, author, administrator, and user `. `'` http://people.debian.org/~madduck - http://debiansystem.info `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing systems i've not lost my mind. it's backed up on tape somewhere.
