Are you confident with this? The problem is that autogenerated files
such as Makefile.in aren't in the upstream history, these are only in
the released tarballs; this means that the tree you manipulate is
different from the extracted Debian source package made from upstream
tarball + diff.
I find it much clearer to import tarballs in the git tree.
