Ok, there is a button at https://code.launchpad.net/~jarnos/ppa-purge/+git/ppa-purge/+ref/master, but what do I have to put on the "Target reference path:" field?

Hi Jarno,
thanks for your help on ppa-purge.

IIRC that should be what it should be merged onto as part of your proposal.
The ppa-purge repo has onla master so "master" should be what you set as target reference path.

If e.g. a project would have per release branches like foo-trusty, foo-xenial, ... you could specify against what this should be merged.

And obvisouyl this is for cloud-init, but other than a being different project the docu is right about the usual steps needed for a MP to a git on Launchpad => https://cloudinit.readthedocs.io/en/0.7.7/topics/hacking.html#do-these-things-for-each-feature-or-bug

Oh, I have not created a topic branch for each feature or bug fix. Originally, my proposal to the Bazaar branch was a single commit, but I have rewritten it into several commits for the git branch (which the project converted to) at least.
