I do, yes.  But that is because I already have the orig.tar.gz from 

If somebody wants to casually build source packages from an older 
version, by using a tool such as darcs-buildpackage -- which generates a 
diff.gz based on the differences between the two branches -- they'll 
need the upstream URL as well.

However, if they are just using it to send me a few patches, the Debian 
URL will do just fine.
