I just tried to follow this and I no longer have access to the repo
through ssh, just normal git, does the alioth password not work for

Also, when I try this with git clone
git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-octave/$PKG.git . instead of
ssh://git.debian.... then if I do this straight after removing the
debian dir I get a "fatal: destination path '.' already exists and is
not an empty directory." and if I skip the . in the end I get a new
directory called $PKG and beneath that a debian directory with all the
debian files, so I don't have a normal dir structure, but rather a
$PKG/$PKG/debian with the upstream in the first $PKG directory (hope
you understood that).
Does the ssh update behave differently?
