+Running the Tests
+The tests are run via
+ python setup.py nosetests
+To also run the component tests you need to initialize the git submodules once
+ git submodule update --init --recursive
+This will fetch the necessary binary data for the DEB and RPM component tests
+and the tests are from now on included within each regular test run.
+Building the API Docs
+You can build the API docs using
+ epydoc -v --config=setup.cfg
+Contributing Patches
+Make sure the tests pass before sending in patch. You can either send it to the
+mailing list or add it to a bug report against git-buildpackage on
+ http://bugs.debian.org/src:git-buildpackage
