Since you wrote "had to":  There is the option to use git mode of uscan
by having a watch file like this:

opts="mode=git,pretty=0.0+git%cd.%h" <URL_of_upstream_git> HEAD

which creates a tarball you can import into your packaging Git.
No idea whether you prefer this but I'm doing it in several packages
to avoid cloning upstream Git.

Kind regards
