Please tell me where I can download your apitrace packages, and

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
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,
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
not match any of the tarballs in the repository.
- Why use pristine-tar when upstream does not provide any tarballs at
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.
