My understanding is that he deletes the branch, recreates a new one off
of upstream, and re-populates it from debian/patches. As I pointed out,
this is exactly what git-rebase does (apply old patches to a new branch
point), assuming that patch-queue has not changed since.
If you're working solo, I fail to see the advantage; but for
collaborative work, the fact that it is based on a branch with linear
history (whether master or your integration branch) instead of
patch-queue might be of help.
