It's usually considered good practice to keep the debian packaging
separate from the upstream source; our source distribution provides:

   - an orig.tar.gz, which is the upstream tarball verbatim (if
   - a diff.gz which is any debian patches and the contents of the
     debian/ directory.

However, we would certainly like to work closely with you as upstream.
Sheldon is the maintainer, so it's up to him where he keeps the debian
packaging, if he'd like to keep it in your VCS so you can both work in
it, that's absolutely fine, but I'd suggest having it separate to the
upstream source, so that both can be released independently.

It's nice to have a responsive upstream maintainer (-:
