Note that, even with your proposal, we would have to update the Vcs-* fields of
all packages, because the Debian Science packages do not have the same access
path on salsa.d.o as they did on alioth.d.o.

I.e., assuming that anonscm.d.o is now an alias for salsa.d.o, we would have to replace:

Vcs-Git: https://anonscm.debian.org/git/debian-science/packages/$pkg.git


Vcs-Git: https://anonscm.debian.org/science-team/$pkg.git
