Good idea, thanks.
2. base packaging on actual tarball instead of directly on top of
the clone of upstream VCS
Of course, I will use tarballs as reference, but the idea is to pull
from upstream VCS up to the latest *tag* corresponding to the tarball,
so that I can "git cherry-pick -x" any (security) fix.
that might prevent future pain if upstream decides to switch to
Frankly, I think it's silly that there's both Git, HG and Bzr around.
It's a loss of time for everyone, when all of the above 3 seems very
close from each other in terms of functionality.
