OK. The most important part to review before uploading is
debian/copyright. Errors there will block the package from entering
Debian. All other errors can be fixed when the package is in unstable. :)

It did seem quite complicated. Some of it could be made easier by
adding a debian/gpb.conf file, and some of it could perhaps be made
easier by using gbp import-orig. Why do you use release branches? I
normally do not.
Btw, you might find this look useful to include in your README:
while quilt push ; do quilt refresh; done
It will refresh all patches unless one of them cause a problem.
