Thanks a lot for this development !

For the packages that I maintain with Git, I commit build logs (the local one
for the uploaded binary packages, plus the buildd ones) in separate branches.
In some cases I found it quite useful.  Have you considered integrating logs in
dgit ?  In a somehow similar goal (finding difference between builds), have you
also considered committing the contents of the unpacked binary packages in
other branches ?

Have a nice day,
