Back in 1998 the former Debian GnuPG Maintainer (James Troup) suggested
to add a debian/ directory. This was later revised but for some
packages it still sits in the repos.
Sure debian/ should be removed. However, in some cases I like to keep
old directories in the repo for example if we are in the process of
moving code. The migration from keyserver helpers to dirmngr is such a
case. tags require that everything has been checked out.
BTW, the repos are development only and do not make a proper release!
