Hello.
I think workflow is a matter of personal taste. So, I won't assume
you're going to adopt mine's (although it's not so different) but I've
list it anyways, cause it's very similar to topgit's recommended:

fixes/*: tg branch fixes/patches that should go upstream -> upstream
features/*: feature patches that should go upstream -> upstream
debian/*: debian specific patches -> upstream or debian
master: the main debianization branch (without debian/patches) ->
upstream 
pristine-tar: the pristine-tar branch for maintainer .orig.tar.gz
build: the build branch (merge from master and tg2quilt tg-export for
generating debian/patches).

In some sites they recommend an extra debian branch and merge master
from there, but this seem as extra pain for nothing here, since i don't
change upstream code. 

Well, that's mine, but still improving. ;)
I want to see more feedback in this thread.
