Bloating control is probably a no-no (might be doable if some fields don't appear in the source/binary packages though). Anyway, here's what I've been doing for our 150+ X packages: $ cat xserver-xorg-video-ati.git/debian/watch #git=git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati version=3 http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/individual/driver/ xf86-video-ati-(.*)\.tar\.gz debcheckout gives you a debian-unstable branch by default. Then calling the tiny xsf-remote-add-upstream script gets the watch file parsed, and the upstream branch added: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-xorg/debian/xsf-tools.git;a=blob;f=xsf-remote-add-upstream > 4/ Please comment > =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- > I don't mind if there's another solution than 3/, but I really would > love if we could achieve 2/.

Because you want “apt-cache showsrc”, which is for source packages. debcheckout does the right thing (if you have deb-src lines). Mraw, KiBi.
