Sebastiaan, thank you very much for your quick response. So I will create

Hi Bas, I am trying to finish my packaging for GRASS daily builds. I
am using 'grass/master' and 'grass/upstream' branches as you proposed,
but I am not sure about 'grass/pristine-tar'. There is no
configuration in 'gbp.conf' to specify 'pristine-tar' branch. Is it
really needed ? If yes, do you have any advice how to configure it ?
