Hi Ben,

I don't mind becoming a co-maintainer, though there's a few things that
need to change to facilitate packaging. First of all, I'd like to switch
to a Git packaging workflow, using git-buildpackage. The debian folder
upstream here should be removed:


otherwise, it will clash with what we have in Alioth. Then I'll push
openvswitch in the Alioth git repository under /git/third-party.

Also, I will remove the debian/automake.mk and the d/copyright hack.
Indeed, Debian needs list of copyright holders, not authors.

Is that fine for you? I'm starting...
