A very important thing I forgot to say:

Please can we leave aside discussion of the merits or otherwise of
each of these formats/workflows.

Perhaps we can talk about that (again!) at some point, but it tends to
derail any conversation about git packaging stuff and I don't want
this thread derailed.

Also I want people to be able to say what they do without feeling they
may be criticised for it.  For that reason, I should also say: please
feel free to reply privately.

Thanks,
Ian.
