I don't have an upstream/ tag yet, because I didn't run gbp import-ref (debian/master was directly branched from upstream).

I can do this after changing the version number.

Yes, this will result in fewer packages pulled in. I have made this change.

Yes, I can change this. I didn't find any guidelines for picking a version number, so I tried to match uscan's mode=git default.

Do you think I should keep the commit date in the version, like 0~~20181009? I can have uscan match this format with the "pretty" option.

Added to d/docs.

Thanks for reviewing!
