Looking at that repo, it did not have the correct structure, but I think
it makes sense to preserve its history anyway. I would do the following
with branches:

debian/unstable — rename to debian/master
master-dfsg — rename to upstream

Also update branch names in debian/gbp.conf accordingly. And gbp should create
a pristine-tar branch when you update to a newer release.
