James Westby (Canonical) is working on a service that imports the full
history of Debian packages in bzr branches. That will be eventually used
to simply the process of merging new versions from Debian.
The branches for each package are available from
(for a specific package).
It's still ungoing work, some revisions might be missing, and he also
plans to rebase the branches when snapshot.debian.org will be available.
