git-buildpackage 0.4.57 adds gbp-clone to /usr/share/doc/examples/. If you use it instead of git pull it will automatically set up your upstream and pristine-tar branches. This was inspired by the helper scripts the ocaml team uses.
git-import-orig now calls a postimport hook which can be used to call git-dch after import so I could remove the hardcoded dch call.
