so bug triaging would be needed. won't you prefer to have an experimental
package and i'd check myself and contact reporters to confirm bug elimination?

do you mean that you wish ./debian/* in git? about upstream, debian packaging
encourages downloading released tar balls, isn't it?

so all you'd like to change is file types' association to debian specific
program names, like (gnome-)?www-browser etc.
deb archives, changelog and control files highlighting should be upstream too,
shouldn't they?

again, do you mean ./debian/*? i'd personnaly prefer svn/hg, but upstream is git
tell where could i co the latest packaging files.
