I plan to start with a short introduction how to handle patches with git, which will hopefully only bore anyone knowing git too much and is intended to give those not knowing git at least a general glimpse about what is possible. Then I hope to show how to use git-dpm to use the power of git to manage Debian packages. I'll assume the audience knows how Debian source packages work but not any VCS workflow.
