Great, thanks. Can I ask you a rather unrelated question ? AIUI you are working on importing Ubuntu's history into git. That's great. Can you confirm what approach you have taken to the representation of Debian source packges as git trees ? I would like to encourage you to use a representation which is compatible with dgit. That is, the git tree object should look exactly like the results of `dpkg-source -x', except that the .pc directory which dpkg-source creates for `3.0 (quilt)' packages is deleted. It would probably be nice if the commit history structure of imported source packges was a bit like the dgit imports. Or better if it were identical, but that's probably too much to ask for because you probably do not want to make dgit 2.x a dependency for your project. I encourage you to try out dgit 2.x and see what you think of its efforts for some existing source packages. Eg `dgit clone libvirt stretch'. Thanks, Ian. -- Ian Jackson <ijack...@chiark.greenend.org.uk> These opinions are my own.
