The README (of the "sugar" packaging at least) does not cover how to 
fully bootstrap your local Git to track upstream Sugarlabs git in 
addition to the Debian packaging git.

...and it is outdated too: I have since found that (for Sugar projects 
at least, which sanely tags each tarball release in Git) it is 
unnecessary to maintain an upstream-git branch at all - it should be 
enough to fetch as a remote and merge upstream release tag.

I have now updated the README.source for "sugar".  Please try it out and 
tell if you understand and it works for you.

Feel free to improve the text, and to replicate to the other Sugar 

Kind regards, and sorry for the mess,
