The issue with doing this, is that you may build a package that works
once, but then if upstream code changes, it may stop to build. I think
that for this reason, it's a way better to store the master branch on
Alioth, then when *WE* decide, we do a pull from upstream.

Don't you think that's reasonable to do this way?
