git-debrebase convert-from-gbp: Make it ff of dgit view, if we can.
Look for dgit-generated tags so we can usually make the new branch ff of the dgit view. Specifically, we fish the most recent released version out of debian/changelog and look for a DISTRO/VSN tag and a corresponding archive/DISTRO/VSN tag. If this all looks good, we declare ff of archive/. This should avoid the need for dgit push --overwrite in most cases. We do not check the DISTRO name. In principle dgit could find the distro name from the suite name, but that makes the software layering quite complicated. (For example, we would have to provide a way to tell gdr what program to run for dgit, for the benefit of the test suite.) I think the current approach is good enough; there are not likely to be any tag pairs that look like the right kind of thing but are in fact something else entirely, so we're not likely to accidentally trash some wanted changes. Closes:#903132. Signed-off-by: Ian Jackson <firstname.lastname@example.org>
