+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 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.
+git-debrebase is a tool for representing in git, and manpulating,
+Debian packages based on upstream source code.
+The source is maintained in git (of course). The principal git
+branch can be found at either of these locations:

+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.
