This is basically the problem.  It's not that we have to use exactly the
same workflow, but the differences between our workflows are large
enough that we can't have something like Fedora's specs repo (e.g. repos
with only the contents of debian/ -- inside or outside an enclosing
debian/ dir).

The best way to think about the current situation is to realise that the
archive is a (bad) VCS: an upload is a commit, so NMUs are commits.
Except for dgit, any repo is a secondary repo when compared to the
archive.

I have submitted a git packaging practices BoF for DebConf.
