Sorry if I made stupid questions, but should I have yaml file in all the

I suppose that my problem is that I don't understand completely the
process. Let me summarize the process and maybe you can help me (and
others I hope ...)

Imagine that I have a package foo maintained in salsa. This package has
master, upstream, pristine-tar, experimental, stretch. And I would like
to test with CI.

From the README I understand that I create the yaml file and I put it in
the debian directory. If I put it the root directory the package doesn't
build because the builder found differences between the git and the orig.

I configure the project in the settings menu -> CI /CD -> General
pipelines pointing to this file. I cannot set the branch.

After what? If I go CI/CD I can only access to an screen with Help?.

Please, could check all the steps in a new project and explain a recipe?

The only way that I have found to by pass this option is to create again
a .gitlab-ci.yaml file, then a pipeline is created and after change the
yaml file. But only the build is done in the master branch not in all

I'm sorry if I insist because from my point of view is not an obvious
procedure and it could be very useful.
