Thanks for this much-needed DEP!

I prefer as much standardization as possible. debian/sid should not be
a particular case.


A paragraph about repacked upstream is needed. A lot of packages are
currently stripped for minified JS, non-free additions, included RFCs,
... What would the upstream/1.x branch be then? Maybe add an
upstream/1.x+debian branch?

Also, the vendor/* branches heads should be at a descendent commit of
the corresponding upstream branch, diffing only by the debian dir.
