I use cvs-buildpackage, but will probably move to something more like
tla-buildpackage in the near future. Both of these tools use a revision
control system to automate the process of updating to a new upstream
If you are already using CVS or Arch, this is probably the way to go. If
not, look at uupdate in devscripts.
