    If I understand right, the advantage of this for developers is the ability to track source code changes in each package as the package is bundled for Debian, instead of needing to hunt for this information or just download different versions and do manual diffs between them. Is that correct? Is there some other advantage I missed?

    I wonder if this will enable people who like compile-everything-from-source Linux distributions like Gentoo to use Debian instead, and just run all of their software updates with something like "dgit pull && ./configure && make && sudo make install"

      For this, there already is apt-build.
