dgit maintains a history of every package in Debian.  If you use dgit to
make your upload, that will include the full Git history of the changes,

and the detailed breakdown of the work between those uploads is not
available via dgit.

But it does provide at least upload-level granularity as a Git history for
every package, even those maintained with no version control system at
all, with the option for each package maintainer of opting into providing
