Oh, I see what you mean. I'm used to a similar workflow like that
using Mercurial Queues. Is there a git sort of equivalent?

It's Latin, heh. Sorry, I thought you might know it:

I worked on the library stuff of qrupdate quite extensively with Paul
Wise (pabs on IRC), so I'm confident it's in good shape. I think the
log should be on d-mentors. The new version keeps everything
compatible and only adds a few symbols, which I've added to
debian/symbols. It should be a simple enough update.
