- List the current releases by branch name:
$ git branch --list 'master/*'
- Or list previous releases by tag name:
$ git tag --list 'master/*'

- And clean the working tree afterwards by doing this:
$ git clean -df $ git reset --hard
Each of the
upstream branches in this repository is an unmodified copy of an
official distribution repository, like those hosted by the Debian or Ubuntu
git-buildpackage framework combines an
upstream branch with
patch-queue branch to create a
By default, git will pull the
upstream branches from the clone origin at
Github and not the actual upstream respositories. Look at the

pull from the official distribution repositories.
Some of the remotes for this repository are bzr repositories at Launchpad. Pulling through bzr requires this bridge helper:
Just download that file directly into the
/usr/local/bin directory and make
it executable. Also run
bzr launchpad-login to ensure that you have a
working bazaar installation.
master branches for Ubuntu are currently based on
official updates are built from those upstream branches.
