What git-buildpackage (hopefully) can do for you.

Maintaining Debian packages in Git

A distributed version control system like Git can ease common packaging tasks like importing new upstream versions or backporting. The tutorial will give an introduction into maintaining Debian packages in Git supported by the tools from git-buildpackage.

Git-buildpackage is one of many packages in Debian that help with maintaining and developing Debian packages in a version control system (VCS). In this case Git is used as underlying VCS. The tools provided help with importing Debian packages and new upstream versions, cloning and updating from remote repositories and patch management. The talk uses real life examples to show how this works.
