If by "debianization" you mean the debian directory, and not just
helpful non-Debian-specific patches, it is generally discouraged for
upstream to ship a debian directory in their tar.gz.  See for instance
this thread on debian-mentors for reasons why:


I guess since mod_dnssd is not currently in Debian, it doesn't do any
harm right now.  However, it would be better for you to find a sponsor
on the debian-mentors list so the Debianized package can be uploaded
into Debian proper.
