This sounds like an excellent step forward! Is there anything
actionable for upstreams here, in or not in Debian? For example as the
author of a package in Ubuntu, hosted on Launchpad, is there anything
I can do to make new versions and fixes easier? Currently I have a
branch with the code and a separate packing branch with gets merged
in, but this is only because at the time MOTU told me that was the
easiest way and actually asked me to move debian/ out of the upstream
source where I was happily maintaining it.
