I'm not sure adding what's presumably essentially a new package
(certainly new upstream code) to the same repo is a good plan, as it
means that there's a lot of irrelevant history bloating every clone
(.git in my freewx.git clone is 234MB).  The only reason that both
wxWidgets and wxPython are in the same repo is that prior to wx 3.0
they were built from a single source package - wxPython classic
contains an entire copy of the wxWidgets source code so we used to
build and package that - so the history is common before that point.

I'd suggest creating a fresh repo on salsa.debian.org (we'll also need
to migrate freewx.git there in the near-ish future as alioth is going
