Dear Jan-Pascal,

the get-orig-source target was not designed with that problematic in mind, so
in my opinion it is acceptable to go ahead without.  In parallel, I recommend
to document in README.source the steps needed to update the debian source
package in its VCS following your practice.

Have a nice day,
