git-ubuntu 1.0 released

I'm pleased to announce that we now consider git-ubuntu ready for
general use. Coinciding with this, the unapplied tags and branches that
are published by git-ubuntu in Launchpad can also now be considered
maintained and stable.

git-ubuntu 1.0 is now published to the stable snap channel. Install

    sudo snap install --classic git-ubuntu

Imported repository status

Repositories for 5560 packages are now maintained in Launchpad and their
"unapplied" branches and tags are considered stable. This includes
nearly all packages in main and some packages in universe that have been
imported on request.

I expect to start expanding coverage to the entire archive soon.

"Unapplied" means the branches prefixed `debian/` and `ubuntu/`, and the
tags prefixed `import/`. These are the primary branches and tags
intended for routine use by distribution developers.

Branches and tags such as `pristine-tar`, `dsc` and `upstream/*` are
intended to ship content rather than history, so are out of scope of
"stability" in the fast-forwarding sense.

The "applied" branches and tags will be declared stable in a future

Changes from 1.0-rc1 to 1.0

The importer service has broken out into worker processes for better

A number of import edge cases concerning "bad" input data are now
handled gracefully and in a stable way.

One importer bug related to the edge case where the same package version
string was published in Debian and Ubuntu but with different contents
has been fixed.

Some snap packaging related bugs are fixed.
