Great!  I am aware of one snafu -- I accidentally removed two ABIs in
the 0.0.38 release, so I'll have to do a 0.0.39 to add them back again.

Yes, but while I have read many blog posts with notes about maintaining
debian packages in git, I haven't see any single complete walk-through
of what I have to do to make that happen.  It seems there are many
variants; some seems to put the entire tar archives in git which I don't
really understand the advantage in.  Do you have some good links?

There is also the question of where to host the git repository.
Savannah's git system doesn't support multiple git repositories per
project.  Using a branch on the official Shishi source git repository
for debian packaging would be possible, but it seems a bit weird to me.
I have running, but my sysadmin cycles are sparse so
I'd prefer to host it somewhere else.
