A quick howto, from back of my head.

By the way, what alessio has to do with all this?

# Initialize a new Git repo with upstream sources
mkdir boot-repair
cd boot-repair
tar -xvzf ../boot-repair_<version>.orig.tar.gz
mv boot-repair-<version>/* .
rmdir boot-repair-<version>
git init
git add *
git commit -a -m "Added initial upstream sources v<version>"

# Add the debian dir in a new branch
git checkout -b debian
echo "[DEFAULT]
upstream-branch = master
debian-branch = debian
export-dir = ../build-area/" >debian/gbp.conf

[ ... add all your files in the debian folder ...]

git add debian
git commit -a -m "Added initial debian folder"

# Now you can build

I hope that helps, cheers,
