Re: Using git-buildpackage --git-keyid
I think the --git-keyid is used only for tagging of the git repository. The
error message comes from debsign, which doesn't know that you're building from
a GIT repo.
debsign needs a gpg key to sign the package and tries to get the key of the
uploader, mentioned in the most recent debian/changelog line.
You can however also give a gpg id to debsign: man debsign
Options for debsign could be given to git-buildpackage and should be
propagated down the line.
