hah, i've had a git tree for a few months ;-)


What i do on mine is merge in release versions and some RC's with
pristine-tar so all upstream are tagged and available as unmodified and
the debian packaging is in the Master branch in a debian/ folder

But yea git is sweet for this kind of development. I think the Lindens
are looking at hg (Mecurial) for a VCS system internally and that is a
dynamic distributed system like git and BoS (literately) wrote the book
on it.

Thanks for the effort though, can never have enough git trees ;-p and a
pure tree based on only the official sources will have some advantages
as mine would require faffing about but is perfect for debian users
trying to build debian packages, but less useful for everyone else.
