The remote clamav-devel is never really used later in the process,
however an upstream/xxx branch is. Was the branch the result of pulling
from clamav-devel and pushing into origin?
git checkout -b xxx remotes/clamav-devel/xxx
git push origin xxx upstream/xxx

BTW the clamav git is also available over git protocol:

Are there any local changes expected at this point to be rebased??

The local clamav-0.95.3 comes out of nowhere.
Is it a local branch tracking upstream/0.95.3 ?
Or remotes/clamav-devel/xxx ?
Or as guessed above these are really the same thing ?

How is clamav_0.95.3+dfsg.orig.tar.gz generated?

Is there really anything in contrib we want to ship?

The rest of the process looks fine.
