Both Vcs-Browser and Vcs-* are meant to contain the current development
copy of the repository used to build the official Debian package. The
intended use is for either a user who sees a bug tagged pending in the
BTS and want to get the patched code or, similarly, for a DD willing to
make an NMU and commit the code where appropriate (if possible).

See the bug I've pointed to in this thread for the complete doc.
