everybody does mistakes, this is why "git revert" exists in first place.
But your changes in the debian directory (I mean the git history) is not
uploaded in unstable in any way, so it will just be part of the packaging history.
The main issue is when you commit something in the source directory, then the
orig tarball doesn't have the same source anymore, and you have dpkg-buildpackage
fail because of modified source.
this is an issue, while everything you commit inside the debian directory isn't
(I mean, the commit itself isn't an issue, the changed stuff it might be :p )
