FWIW -- you might like my helper
http://git.onerussian.com/?p=etc/bash.git;a=blob;f=.bash/bashrc/30_aliases_sh;h=196f98ab0b87519ab326b26674d8f2c720195ebc;hb=HEAD#l347

so my typical workflow for such usecases

git fetch origin
git checkout debian  # where packaging lives
git merge origin/master
dch_gitrev -i origin/master 

to get something like this in case of datalad:

$> dch_gitrev -i origin/master
new entry
D: mbase is 'c1e438708ad29293eb2853f5e9cd0b7743d362f0'
D: Got new_entry='1', upstream ver of last entry 0.9.1 and
624-gc1e43870.  So should be 0.9.1+git624-gc1e43870-1

note that the "beauty" is that git still understands that version (strip
debian suffix):

$> git describe 0.9.1+git624-gc1e43870  
0.9.1-624-gc1e43870
