[PATCH] Initial support for building a debian package (.deb)
It's not any harder to include debian package support than to include a spec file so here is the setup to build the equivalent debian package. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>

+Description: The git content addressable filesystem
+ GIT comes in two layers. The bottom layer is merely an extremely fast
+ and flexible filesystem-based database designed to store directory trees
+ with regard to their history. The top layer is a SCM-like tool which
+ enables human beings to work with the database in a manner to a degree
+ similar to other SCM tools (like CVS, BitKeeper or Monotone).
