I have a project on Launchpad that consists of a single branch (
trunk). I would like to create a second branch that contains the Debian packaging for the project (with the intent of creating a build recipe that merges it into the main branch before building).
I've done this before by just pushing a local branch to
lp:~me/project_name/debian. However, this stacks the branch with
trunk, which I don't want (it becomes impossible to delete
trunk without deleting the Debian packaging branch - a restriction that has caused problems before).
What is the proper way to do this?
