Thanks for your proposal, but I don't think I can reasonably commit to
work on pkg-virtualbox stuff on any kind of regular basis.

It's important to me to help bootstrapping the process of having a
2.6.38+ -compatible VirtualBox in squeeze-backports, but I don't think
I will be able to help that much on the long run.

It seems like "git bundle verify" only shows the refs (== heads ==
branches tips) the bundle contains, rather than the whole list of
commits it contains.

I successfully tried the following:

  $ git bundle list-heads ../virtualbox-ose_4.0.4-dfsg-2~bpo60+1.bundle
  181de00272b548d241b4c116806fd016e2b4893c HEAD
  $ git bundle unbundle ../virtualbox-ose_4.0.4-dfsg-2~bpo60+1.bundle
  $ git checkout -b squeeze-backports 181de00272b548d241b4c116806fd016e2b4893c
  Switched to a new branch 'squeeze-backports'
  $ git log --pretty=oneline debian/4.0.4-dfsg-2..
  181de00272b548d241b4c116806fd016e2b4893c Adapt gbp configuration for Squeeze backports branch.
  4e8d9b33ed64b68223f7006437420bda6ad925a8 Update changelog for 4.0.4-dfsg-2~bpo60+1

... so this should work for you as well :)
