*Real* source only uploads (only source, non source+all that were
possible since at least 1 year) to unstable and experimental are
possible only since DebConf 15 (where it was implemented).
Just non-free is a bit special, since autobuilding package it's not
enabled by default.
In general, doing source only uploads is usually preferred for several
reason: 1) build logs are published, and that nice 2) binaries are built
in a environment that is stable and uniform and usually more trusted
than a random DD's laptop.

To upload a non-free package, and get it built by the autobuilders you
need 'XS-Autobuild: yes' and according to DevRef § 5.10.5 also to mail
somebody (dunno for what).

umh, tbh I didn't really checked the tags, I just noted the branches
where not updated and skipped it.

well "default git url" is not really a thing.
ATM I see everybody (me included) prefer to use stuff like
your link get redirected by the https-everywhere extension to
which contains just nothing, and I've to manually edit the url to get
If I disable https-everywhere it gets redirected correctly, btw.
