# problems / outstanding questions:
-# * dgit push with a `3.0 (quilt)' package means doing quilt
-# fixup. Usually this involves recommitting the whole patch
-# series, one at a time, with dpkg-source --commit. This is
-# terribly terribly slow. (Maybe this should be fixed in dgit.)
-# * Workflow is currently clumsy. Lots of spurious runes to type.
-# There's not even a guide.
# * new-upstream has an awkward UI for multiple upstream pieces.
# You end up with giant runic command lines. Does this matter /
# One consequence of the lack of richness it can need -f in
