if there is no reply here it might be worth contacting github support
trying to figure it out or to reclaim it. Usually they are quite open
and supportive (although I never had to deal with reclaiming)

yeap -- FWIW I have been using such setup for many projects. With a
help of few git aliases pushing to multiple repositories becomes very
easy to keep them in sync.
little hint -- for your clone on github in Admin page you can change the
default branch to point to 'debian' or whatever it would be if not
master where packaging would reside.
