Please tell me where I can download your apitrace packages, and unless there is
 something wrong with them I'll upload them to Debian today.

Ok, found something in git://git.debian.org/pkg-xorg/app/apitrace.git. Some issues:

- It's an old version, latest is 5.0. Do you intend to update this package?

Yes; I'm about halfway through doing so. As you might have noticed, the annoying bit is extracting a bunch of embedded code copies - zlib, snappy, png.

I hit my buildsystem-madness threshold and then got busy with other things. I'll see if I can finish this off tonight.

- You're using pristine-tar, but the upstream version in debian/changelog does
  not match any of the tarballs in the repository.

- Why use pristine-tar when upstream does not provide any tarballs at all?

So people can easily build packages requiring Debian-only updates given only the git packaging branch, rather than the packaging branch plus downloading the tarball from the Debian archives.
