I had a look at vorbis-tools, and it seem like it is time to upload the
git version to unstable.  This is the current changelog:

  [ Martin Steghöfer ]
  * Format patches for gbp-pq, correct tagging and add missing
    information to tagging.

    libvorbis version) or to improve error message (with patched libvorbis).
  * Fix vorbistagedit: Reading of file list from stdin was broken.
    (Closes: #771448)
  * Documentation of vorbistagedit: Improve wording of error message.

Is there some reason not to upload?

Would be nice if we could add a debian/tests/ test suite and run it
during build, like I did for the oggvideotools package, to automatically
give me some confidence that the new version work. :)

Happy hacking
