    <para>
    &git-import-orig; imports <replaceable>upstream-source</replaceable> into
    the &git; repository. <replaceable>upstream-source</replaceable> can either
    be a gzip or bzip2 compressed tar archive or an alreay unpacked source
    tree. If it is already of the form
    <replaceable>package-name_version.orig.tar.gz</replaceable>, the version
    information is read from the tarball's filename otherwise it can be
    given on the command line via <option>--upstream-version</option>.
   
    Upon import <command>git_load_dirs</command> is being used to detect file
    renames and removals.
