        The submodule I have are the ./debian and ./debian/common
 directories. So, evey time I change ./debian/common (once or twice a
 year), the ./debian directories for all packages are updated (about 30
 or so branches). For every debian release, the ./debian dir is changed,
 and the integration branch is updated.

        This is mostly automated. I change ./debian, and commit,
 git_rel does a cd..; git add debian, git commit -s; and I am done.
 After testing, I just run tag_release <package> from anywhere on my
 home machine, and it does the tagging and the pushing.

        One tag.

        Now, if I have 5-6 branches, I can perhaps write something up
 that goes to each branch, and tags the base/tip. This is another 10-12

        Seems more messy to me. YMMV.
