Due to the non-reaction of upstream to the [[http://lists.meego.com/pipermail/meego-dev/2010-September/006205.html|[Proposal] Packaging management in DVCS]] mail, most upstream repositories ship packaging files (debian/, *.spec, *.yaml files and directories). In order to workaround this, DidierRaboud runs a "cleaning" script bi-daily that pushes to gitorious too. The master branch of said "cleaned" repository doesn't contain the packaging files and upstream/${version} tags are created with "git changelogs" included. This master branch is regularly (hand-)merged into the "upstream" branch of the alioth git repositories.

Packaging practices

Despite the [Proposal] Packaging management in DVCS mail, most upstream repositories still ship packaging files (debian/, *.spec, *.yaml files and directories). In order to workaround this, DidierRaboud runs a "cleaning" script bi-daily that pushes to gitorious too. The master branch of said "cleaned" repository doesn't contain the packaging files and upstream/${version} tags are created with "git changelogs" included. This master branch is regularly (hand-)merged into the "upstream" branch of the alioth git repositories.

Additionally, as the upstream/${version} are git leaves (not in the chain of commits leading to "upstream"), most alioth repositories include a "mergeNewUpstreamRelease.sh" that should be called from the "master" branch as $ debian/mergeNewUpstreamRelease.sh upstream/${version} . This handles the merging and the pristine-tar generation.
