personally, i don't use "master" or references to specific upstream
versions at all in the branching, and use something like the following:


(etc).  the pkg-php php.git would be a good example of that.

i find this system is generally intuitive and trouble free, as long as you
don't end up needing to support multiple versions of the software in
the *same* release.

fyi about git-buildpackage: you can put the branch names and any other
release-specific stuff in ./debian/gbp.conf, on the respective debianized
branch, which means you can have different configurations on a per-branch
basis, and don't need to pass all those pesky options to gbp every time
you run it :)
