Sounds great!

The Debian packaging repo is here:
https://salsa.debian.org/xorg-team/driver/xserver-xorg-video-glint

This may be an easier starting point, as you can use git-buildpackage to
import the sources directly into a local clone. Then, just create a new
changelog entry with dch, commit, and start building.

But it's not that straightforward if you're not familiar with the tools.

Good work.

I think we should really get these old drivers back into Debian Ports in
some way.
