I usually load the Debian package into some version control system
prior to making changes.  For instance, for GIT, it's:

  git init
  git add .
  git commit -m "Import PACKAGE VERSION"

or something like that.  All "the working copy is a repository"
systems (Mercurial, darcs, even RCS) work fine for that purpose.
