I'm not sure that's really a problem? Lintian already gives us warnings
if the Vcs-Git isn't https://, because git:// doesn't have integrity
protection and ssh+git:// isn't open to the public.

(DDs and other contributors with Salsa accounts can use insteadOf or
pushInsteadOf to switch https:// URLs to git+ssh:// if they want to.)
