Make sure the origin is up to date, and checkout the branch:

 git fetch origin
 git checkout wheezy

Building the package comes down to:

 git-buildpackage --git-pbuilder --git-debian-branch=wheezy \
 --git-dist=wheezy --git-pristine-tar

The most relevant difference is that the package needs to be built in an
up to date wheezy environment.

The changes to be uploaded also need to be discussed with the Release
Team before the upload. This was done in #738935 where the Stable
Release Manager OKed the proposed change as long as the distribution was
changed from unstable.
