I found that this magic command helps:

1- edit files in debian/ and debian/ only ... if you need to patch
things beside packaging,
  it's going to be more complex than I know how to deal with.
2- commit them, maybe commit --amend if no one else has seen your
previous attempts...
git clean -xfd ; git-buildpackage --git-debian-branch=release
--git-upstream-tag="%(version)s" --git-tag --git-retag
--git-force-create --git-ignore-branch

I've uploaded a new package 2:3.1.2-2 at
http://mentors.debian.net/package/cl-asdf after a few attempts.
In case of difficulties, #debian-mentors on irc.oftc.net is here to help.
Finally, not only am I in the process of getting away from ASDF,
I also am getting away from Debian: I'm not using it at home anymore
(I'm a convert to NixOS),
and at work I'm using Ubuntu boxes but they are mostly work-managed.

Actually, this all prompted me to rewrite asdf's build and test
infrastructure from Lisp to CL. Much better now. See branch
minimakefile, that I hope Robert will let me merge into master soon.
(Also pending merge into master: branch syntax-control).
