It depends on where you plan to submit your changes.

If you want to help developing the upstream software project, then work
on a git clone and ask the upstream project people for advise how to
contribute.

If I'm understanding correctly, yea!


Also, I'm leaning toward the understanding that if I want to make an improvement, bug-fix, etc, to the program itself, I probably want to go to the upstream maintainer (through the proper channels); if I want to make an improvement, bug-fix, etc that is specific to Debian's implementation of the program, I probably want to go to the Debian maintainer (through the proper channels).
