> Debian Developers got sick of upstreams shipping debian/ directories,

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!
