All branches used for the upstream GRASS packaging should be prefixed

Sebastiaan, thank you very much for your quick response. So I will
branch 'grass/daily' or rather 'grass/ubuntu/daily' ?
I don't think the ubuntu string is needed in the branch name, so the
former is better.
If the packages will be built with git-buildpackage I suggest the to
mirror the typical gbp layout:
Since the upstream GRASS code includes a debian directory, a single
branch should be sufficient, but it's not compatible with
git-buildpackage (by default at least).
