Do you think I should change the Phrase like added the Format:
Upstream-Name: and Source field instead?

We can keep if we had the previous history in Git but in my case the
suckless-tools is a fresh repository from 39-1 and previous maintainer
had his own repository in his own domain. So its kinda messy situation
that I can't hold this package history in existing suckless-tools.git.
Or better I host it some where else than collab like github or
gitorious with same name as suckless-tools.git what do you think?
