Great work!

Not sure it is sensible to have me as uploader, though, as I am not 
comfortable using the packaging style involving short-form dh sequencer.  
Fine with me if we instead use CDBS with classic-style debhelper (I am 
happy doing the conversion), but I can imagine that being similarly an 
issue for others, so guess best is simply that I step out of the loop.

(please beware, Petter, that I didn't confirm on irc to be listed as 
maintainer because of this dh/cdbs issue - I am not criticizing here, 
just mentioning because possibly others that you promote also haven't 
confirmed for whatever reason)

git-import-orig --upstream-vcs-tag=<tag/commit> <tarball>
