Unless your package was written specifically for Debian and Debian
alone, the documentation of the debian/ directory upstream reads as:

Item 1: Don't package debian/* in the upstream release.
Item 2: See 1.

You can have it in CVS/svn/whatever, but it should not be part of the
tarball release - the Debian maintainer will deal with that separately.
