There's seem to be nothing wrong in the repository [0].

I don't know what you did, but the "correct way" to build a package from 
git should be (using git-buildpackage):

   $ gbp-clone --pristine-tar git+ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-rakudo/pkg-rakudo.git
   $ cd pkg-rakudo
   $ git buildpackage                        # just like svn-buildpackage

This will pull all the git branches (master, upstream and pristine-tar)
locally (if you do only a "git clone", it pulls only master and you have to
manually create the other branches) and by default it will build the 
package using debuild, to change that pass the --git-builder option, e.g.:

   $ git buildpackage --git-builder pdebuild # use pbuilder to build

Let me know if the problem persists :)

Btw, I've also uploaded a package to mentors.d.n some time ago to check that
everything was fine (I think you received an aknowledgment about that). The
package can be found at [1].

Also, given that this discussion hasn't received a response from the 
parrot side yet, I would start asking gregor to review the package and
maybe upload to experimental. What do you think?
