debian/rules get-orig-source after updating the changelog entry to reflect
the new upstream version to generate the new tarball, and then run
git-import-orig on that tarball.

The Debian packaging isn't based off of and doesn't merge with upstream's
revision control system.  When upstream isn't using Git, this is awkward
enough that it hasn't feel like it would be worth the trouble.
