I used to, but I don't think there's a point anymore. I don't see
any difference between treating the debian branch as a topic branch
and merging it into build last, or just doing all of debian/* on
master and merging upstream and topic branches into it. With mdadm,
which is a thorough mess right now (since I am the only one tracking
that repo I can afford to go wild), I am building maint/lenny and
debian/experimental directly, while master still gets merged into
build. I don't see a reason for that anymore.

Now, with TopGit, and specifically the need to recreate ancient
packages, well, see your other post... with TopGit right now, the
build branch makes sense.
