    <para>
    &git-import-orig; imports a tar.gz file given by
    <replaceable>tar_gz<replaceable> into the git-buildpackage repository. If
    <replaceable>tar_gz</replaceable> is already of the form
    package_version.orig.tar.gz, it reads the version information from the
    tarball's filename otherwise it can be specified on the commandline.
   
    When importing the new version <command>git_load_dirs</command> is being
    used to detect file renames and removals.
