If you check Debian Med policy[1] you see that you can freely choose
between SVN or Git.  So if it is not in SVN you could look into Git.

There is a general way to seek for packages:

$ apt-cache search ggplot | grep ggplot
r-cran-ggplot2 - implementation of the Grammar of Graphics

and you can seek for the Vcs via

$ apt-cache showsrc r-cran-ggplot2 | grep Vcs
Vcs-Browser: http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-med/r-cran-ggplot2.git;a=summary
Vcs-Git: git://git.debian.org/git/debian-med/r-cran-ggplot2.git

which answers your question (independently from Debian Med in special.)
Another option is

    debcheckout r-cran-ggplot2

Hope this helps
