You insist that these Debian-specific details should be shared with
Bert, the Sugarlabs pedagogical list and the Sugarlabs development list.

Thanks for clarifying: My packaging style *is* documented, just
Others have found those shitty, half-baked incomplete notes useful.
You have ignored help offered at the OLPC mailinglist at Alioth. Your
only interest seems to be in upgrading core Sugar libraries to the
unstable branch, not starting out with simple activities.
My packaging style consists of git-buildpackage and CDBS, as you seem
well aware. Both are in themselves rather well documented. Go read that
documentation if you dislike mine.
Or don't: You can package other packages using other packaging styles if
you wish - just don't expect me to help you out with that. And don't try
to change packaging style of existing packages.

You complain that the packaging is too complex, yet you need even more
complexity to track not only latest stable branch but also HEAD.
Or more likely: you want us to package in the pace of Ubuntu release
cycle (latest stable, except when Ubuntu is far from next release).
Sorry, can't help you there.
