That is a concern afaic, but the critical difference for me is that (all) the

Question as I don't know: is that only the package change that gets uploaded 
to the Debian archive, or is there also a place where the (git) history of the 
changes leading up to a new upload gets stored?

To use an analogy: I'd like that not only the 'destination' is preserved, but 
also the lead up to the destination.
