Great, thanks.

Can I ask you a rather unrelated question ?  AIUI you are working on
importing Ubuntu's history into git.  That's great.

Can you confirm what approach you have taken to the representation of
Debian source packges as git trees ?  I would like to encourage you to
use a representation which is compatible with dgit.

That is, the git tree object should look exactly like the results of
`dpkg-source -x', except that the .pc directory which dpkg-source
creates for `3.0 (quilt)' packages is deleted.

It would probably be nice if the commit history structure of imported
source packges was a bit like the dgit imports.  Or better if it were
identical, but that's probably too much to ask for because you
probably do not want to make dgit 2.x a dependency for your project.

I encourage you to try out dgit 2.x and see what you think of its
efforts for some existing source packages.  Eg `dgit clone libvirt

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
