The instructions say
I wasn't clear on where to get this (apt-file couldn't find it). Searching more
thoroughly, it looks like it lives in pkg-perl/meta.git, as you say. The
document didn't state this at all. What do you think about packaging those tools
together with dh-make-perl? Even if the document was clear, I don't think it
should be required to have to check out some git repo in order to push up the
code "correctly". I can help with this.
For the record, I used dh-make-perl to create the repo. This created an "origin"
remote, but didn't actually create it on the server, which made "git push" not
work. I then used "gbp-create-remote" to create the server repo and push it up.
Another nice thing to do would be to make gbp-create-remote recognize that it's
pushing up to a particular project (pkg-perl in this case), and to do whatever
extra work is needed. Then the individual teams wouldn't need to have different
procedures. I know this involves more than just pkg-perl, but it could be a good
