+dgit & git-debrebase
+====================
+
+ * `dgit` - git integration with the Debian archive
+ * `git-debrebase` - delta queue rebase tool for Debian packaging
+
+These tools are independent and can be used separately, but they work
+well together, and they share a source package and a test suite.
+
+dgit
+----
+
+dgit allows you to treat the Debian archive as if it were a git
+repository. Conversely, it allows Debian to publish the source of its
+packages as git branches, in a format which is directly useable by
+ordinary people.
+
+Documentation: https://manpages.debian.org/testing/dgit
+
+git-debrebase
+-------------
+
+git-debrebase is a tool for representing in git, and manpulating,
+Debian packages based on upstream source code.
+
+Documentation: https://manpages.debian.org/testing/git-debrebase
+
+Contributing
+------------
+
+The source is maintained in git (of course). The principal git
+branch can be found at either of these locations:
+
+ * https://salsa.debian.org/dgit-team/dgit
+ * https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/ucgi/~ianmdlvl/git/dgit.git/
+
+Merge requests on Salsa are welcome; as are code contributions via the
+Debian Bug Tracking System. If you encounter a bug, please report it
+via the Debian BTS.
+
+The package is marked up for message and document translation.
+See po/README which has Notes for Translators.
