If you will only upload gri (rather than gri2.1.17) into Debian,
then there is nothing to discuss -- just do it :-) You are free to make
any local packages you want to and distribute them unofficially, although
you own both pieces if something breaks.
If you did want to upload multiple versions to run together then
debian-policy would be appropriate.
