I believe "we" in above is "those interested in working together with 
Edward Cherlin on writing a Debian packaging book.

Above describes git repositories, one repository for each Debian 
packaging of a single upstream piece of software.

It might be expanded to other things than packages for Debian (e.g. 
books), but it is unclear if that is what Holger is talking about and I 
am not interested in working on books currently so have no opinion on

Who are "we" in above, Walter?

If you suggest that Debian organize its internal packaging routines to 
better match Sugarlabs structuring of their code, then I would recommend 
that you join the respective mailinglist (if you are not already 
subscribed) and we continue the discussion there.

If you are perhaps talking about book authoring, then I shall not 
interfere more with it.

Kind regards,
