In general this seems to be correct. You could also clone the existing
Git repository salsa.debian.org and import the new upstream release on
the upstream branch. Any Debian related changes should be made on
master. I don't want to confuse you with too many details but if you
like to work with Git then "git-buildpackage" is a fine tool to build
Debian packages from Git directly.

If you have created a new account, please request membership for the
games-team or send me your email address which you have used to
register, then I can invite you and grant you write access.
