Correct. I'm suggesting "fail" for the round-tripping - for "git ubuntu build-source" to "unescape" the ..git. Or if we don't agree, then I think there are only three reasonable choices: (fail, discard, unescape). I'm suggesting: 1. Interactive use: fail. 2. Non-interactive use ("batch mode", eg. -B like ssh): unescape. > (I assume that Launchpad would be taught to reject new introductions > of \.+git other than in security support or ancient branches.) Agreed - if it doesn't do that already. > If someone has such an importer-generated tree, containing ..git, they > can just use it and ignore the ..git.
