The last time I've checked etckeeper it didn't track the original files
and it placed the git directory in /etc.

About the second one I'm not shure it is really useful, but the first one
gives you the possibility to see what you've changed:

  etcgit diff master local_config

And the merge of the new config files is done by git, which might result
in fewer conflicts than the merge done by dpkg.

Bye, Jörg.
