You will have to register all the repositories separately, probably even
in separate launchpad projects (as these are basically subprojects on
Google code).

There is no standard mechanism for discovering multiple git repositories
in a remote project at the moment.

The recipe builder expects to find the debian control information in
debian/control in the tree root.
