I don't see the problem, github is just a hosting provider. Unlike,
say Bitkeeper, you are free to make git clones anywhere, entirely with
open source software, and are in no way locked down to using github.

Except maybe features like the issue tracking, which may not be really
appropriate for Debian packages anyway. Debian has its own BTS that
should be used.

Anyway, if github is still a problem, try http://gitorious.org/ - I
believe that it is based entirely on open source software.
