Wauw - that is smarter than I've ever done before. Sure, go ahead - and
no, you need not do a test, just roll them all like that, please!
And please do use signed tags and pristine-tar as much as possible.
Actually, one improvement I'd suggest over the one documented:
After the "initial upstream branch" commit close to the end, but before
force-merging with master, please try apply all but newest upstream
tarballs fetched using debsnap with "git-import-orig --no-merge".
I say "try" because I've never done so myself and am uncertain if it
works, but if it does, we then are easier able to correlate not only our
debian subdir but also upstream changes.
