Ah I will take care of it. but for a note I use git-import-orig with
--upstream-vcs-tag option pointing to release tag. before that you need
to have upstream-repo remote

git add upstream-repo https://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome (IIRC
the URL but might be different)
git fetch upstream-repo
git import-orig --upstream-vcs-tag=4.2  --sign-tags
--keyid=your_gpg-keyid /path/to/tarball

I will just put up this in README.source.
