I maintain small distro whichs keeps all it's package sources in git
repos pulling from their upstream parent repos, git, hg, svn and cvs. A
very few packages, sudo being one, I've had to manage in upstream-less
repos built from imported tarballs. Obviously this is rather more work
than git/hg pull, so I was looking for a way round it.

It seems from what you say that persuading you to tag patch releases is
the optimal solution, but I don't like people messing with my own
work-flow, so I won't try that ;)
