I thought it was a nice logical separation between features that are intended for upstream, and features which we know are Debian-specific. If you make the distinction, then you can tell upstream to just track all branches off upstream (assuming TopGit could identify them easily).

You know you can set it up to auto-push, right? ;) -- .''`. martin f. krafft <madd...@d.o> Related projects: : :' : proud Debian developer http://debiansystem.info `. `'` http://people.debian.org/~madduck http://vcs-pkg.org `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing systems "emacs sucks, literally, not an insult, just a comment that it's large enough to have a noticeable gravitational pull..." -- mercury on #debian-devel
