git-import-orig should generally just work, provided that you have it
configured to use pristine-tar.  I was planning on backporting 2.1 since
that will be much easier than packaging 2.2 (which requires updates to
five packages and will require coordination with debian-release because
of the SONAME changes) and then working on 2.2, but of course if 2.2 is
ready before I get to 2.1, that also works. has the
necessary configuration details and the Packaging workflow section goes
through importing a new upstream, although I think you may already know
about that page.
