+The dgit git history
+(visible in gitk and git log)
+is not necessarily related to the maintainer's
+or upstream's git history (if any).
+If the maintainer has advertised a git repo with
+dgit will set up a remote for it,
+so you can do
+ % git fetch vcs-git
+You can cherry pick changes from there, for example.
+Note that the maintainer's git history may not be
+suitable for use with dgit.
+For example, it might be a patches-unapplied branch
+or even contain only a debian/ directory.
