I'd like to second that request, I mean to go through this thread again
when I have some free moments, but a FAQ would help a lot to assimilate
all this information.

(I'm in a similar boat to Holger with my experience to gbp, I tried
going through the documentation on the wiki a few times and just got
frustrated. I just use packaging and Vcs-fields and tags and nothing
fancier than that, which works for the few dozen packages I have and I
think the workflow is trivial enough so that downstream consumers
wouldn't have any problem whatsoever figuring out how to make use of it,
but I suppose as that list grows it will become important to have
worflows that scale up a bit more.)
