  As Miriam, I also prefer no upstream sources in SVN. But upstream
sources in the repository could be the policy for git - or would that be
too confusing ?

  In any case, developers will use two rather different set of tools to
work either with SVN or git, so not having the exact same policy there
should not matter too much, as long as common practices (I'm thinking
about debian/{changelog,control}) are kept consistent across VCS boundaries.
