Using pristine-tar on the repackaged tarball that are produced by uscan
is also an option. Then anyone can use the package Git repository to
reproduce the source.

For Torbutton, I am using the upstream Git repository (and
git-buildpackage) as my way to generate the .orig.tar.gz. As releases
have (signed) tags, I consider it sufficient.

You can have a look at the debian/README.source of torbutton, it might
help to get a better idea of the procedure involved.

You can always have a watch file for the PTS on top of that.
