The 2.4 branch is cunningly disguised as r_2_3_final.
A fresh source tree is pulled in by packaging/BuildSnapshot.py, which
now has a -t (--tag) option to specify the desired CVS tag. After
that, insert a packaging/linux/debian directory and run packaging/
BuildSnapshot.py with the --no-checkout option to build from your new
tree. When the packaging/linux/debian/* files are complete (i.e.
correctly build the package), they could go into CVS. Using the
BuildSnapshot.py mechanism takes a bit of work to set up (adapt
fedora, gentoo or slackware directories), but really saves time in
the long run; as changes are made to CVS, new snapshots and point
releases become trivial (sort of, mostly, sometimes,...).
