OK, I didn't hear that as an answer but think I'm coming to the same
conclusion that Ian did after reading your mail.
It sounds like you are talking about having the Debian packaging in a
separate repository from upstream.
Do I correctly understand the model you are talking about?

I'm not trying to be dense here.  I'm 85% sure I'm correct here but
would like te bring that up to 100%
