parent 86867060
This suppose you have either a sid/experimental system with latest GNOME packages or a pbuilder setup with these packages. In a VM, enable experimental sources then:
apt-get build-dep -t experimental gnome-shell
apt-get install quilt git-buildpackage
* clone debian git in gnome-shell-debian
git clone gnome-shell-debian
* clone upstream git
git clone gnome-shell-git
* disable upstream VCS tag checking
