The Salsa service is not essential for package maintenance and is kept
at arm's length from the archive.  Debian does not build directly out
of Git, uploaders still have to create a self-contained source package
by an out-of-bands process.  Whether that is better than building from
essentially a SHA-1 hash (like building out of Git would be like in
some obvious implementations) in terms of the audit trail it provides
is difficult to decide.
