i didn't have much to add for the rest :)

no, currently i'm mostly using quilt, though i've been looking into
topgit as well[1].  what i mean is that when you need to make a new patch
(often by importing an older patch which doesn't necessarily cleanly
apply), the steps to do so are long and cumbersome with a ./debian-only
svn repo.  svn-do makes it at least somewhat bearable, but not by much.

i'd much rather have the whole source in git, and a debian branch which
when diffed against the upstream branch gave a diff strictly consisting
of additions under ./debian.

maybe we should start up a new thread for opinions/discussions/plans?


[1] topgit looks really promising, but for me it still has a few dealbreakers
    which have to this point kept me from trying it out.
