Selecting the mode

When setting up a package to use bzr-builddeb there are several ways of organising the branch which depend on the type of the package, and the way in which you want to work. The choices are laid out below, but to decide which is applicable you might want to answer the following questions.

  1. Is the package a native package?
  1. Are you also the upstream maintainer?
  1. Do you want to store only the debian/ directory?
  1. Would you like to maintain a separate branch for your packaging work?
