+The `upstream/master` thing is probably propellor's code looking in `/usr/src/propellor` for a new upstream version.
+
+Do you perhaps no longer have the Debian package of propellor installed?

+[@spwhitton](https://propellor.branchable.com/user/spwhitton/), My current host machine is OpenBSD. So, I get propellor from `cabal`.
+
+Currently I've propellor 5.8.0 installed from cabal.
+
+My local propellor repo is itself is stuck at 5.3.5 (<https://git.ricketyspace.net/propellor/files.html>).
+
+I wanted to know if there was a way to manually merge upstream changes into my local propellor repo?

+
+Add upstream repo and fetch tags:
+
+```
+$ cd ~/.propellor
+
+$ git remote add u git://propellor.branchable.com/propellor
+$ git fetch u --tags
+```
+
+Look for the list releases:

+0.1
+0.1.1
+0.1.2
+0.2.0
+0.2.1
+...
+...
+...
+X.Y.Z
+```
+
+To merge release `X.Y.Z` into your master branch, do:
+
+```
+$ git merge -X theirs --allow-unrelated-histories X.Y.Z
+```
+
+Fix any conflicts and:

+$ git commit

+The `git://` protocol is unencrypted and unauthenticated and you're not verifying Joey's PGP signature on the tag that you merge, so this approach is dangerous.
+
+I would insert a `git verify-tag` step in there. You'd want to make a record of (and perhaps locally sign) Joey's PGP key.
