Okay, yes, that sounds pretty awesome. That may entirely remove my
concerns about keeping the patches always rebased.
Well, if we had one more thing: a patches.debian.org service that would
show the git-debcherry-extracted patches against upstream. I really like
being able to just point upstream at all the patches relevant to them that
Debian has applied.
