think I need to ask some questions about before I can document it

What source format do you use ?  What is in debian/source/format, if
anything ?  Do you handle orig tarballs at all ?

When you go to a new upstream, you make a new git branch, then ?
Do you publish this git branch anywhere ?

What is that ?  manpages.debian.org wasn't any help.
Did you mean dpkg-buildpackage ?
