Oh, sure, absolutely.  Like you, I maintain all of my packages in multiple
Git repositories (once I add Salsa, there will generally be four of them)
for each package.

Hm, that's an interesting thought.  I do generally include that sort of
information in the docuemntation of all packages for which I'm upstream,
but for Debian I've assumed the preferred way to propose changes is the
BTS.  Now that's potentially changing with Salsa.  I don't really mind
monitoring multiple input formats, but some people will.
