Sorry, I have probably misunderstood things here. I
deleted /srv/git.debian.org/git/pkg-perl/packages/libdpkg-parse-perl.git/ thinking that it would return things to as they were. However, looks like there is something more complicated going on than I thought. I assume that will happen again if I try running "dpt alioth-repo" again?

It does, but that was added by dh-make-perl (I assume)
# git remote -v

I'll try that in a moment (once I've done some updates to the package).
However, am I doing something wrong for dh-make-perl to add "origin" and
then "dpt alioth-repo" to try adding it again?
