One of the following in decreasing preference:
Ask upstream to perform releases using `make distcheck`.
Make the release tarballs yourself using upstream's `make distcheck`,
preferrably run from the debian/rules get-orig-source target.
Write a debian/rules get-orig-source target that checks out the code
from git and creates a tarball from it.
