Without having had a look into any of this:  Could you please explain
what exactly is easier / complex in both setups?

I think there is no point in having *more* people doing packaging
outside Debian.

For me it makes perfectly sense if you focus on upstream but maintaining
a "competing" debian/ dir without beeing familiar with Debian packaging
stuff is a way of thinking I can not follow.  Why exactly do you want to
repeat a work which is done by somebody else by at the same time
confirming that you can not do a better job than this somebody else?

This warning can generally be ignored.
