OK.  For those who care about the Git workflow in our team policy
document[1]:  Would you consider adding the way the Debian Octave team
is handling the experimental branch to this document.  (And if you agree
in principle but have time constraints please ping me.)

Similar?  No, `git-buildpackage --git-ignore-new` did not worked
for me and I've got the hint that I should use

   git-buildpackage --git-ignore-branch
but I somehow considered specifying the branch explicitely would
be the more clean solution.

No problem.  I somehow have the feeling that you will come back to
Debian fully and will do the uploads yourself sooner or later. ;-)

I do not think that appending CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS instead of overriding or
respecting LDFLAGS is anyhow Debian specific but rather good Makefile
Kind regards
