Correct.  I posted you privately the confirmation.

That's the name of a Debian host.  Probably (judging from the context it 
was mentioned) the one currently hosting the Alioth service more 
generically offered as git.debian.org.

(In my 10 years with Debian I have survived referring only to service 
names.  I believe machine names should be avoided whenever possible.)

Well, that's certainly one style, but not the one I use (any longer).  I 
use git-buildpackage with options --pristine-tar and --signed-tags, i.e. 
I bootstrap with either "git-import-orig --pristine-tar --signed-tags" 
or (when adopting an existing Debian package not using VCS before) 
"git-import-dscs --debsnap --pristine-tar --signed-tags".

We have not discussed VCS habits in this team, nor if we should mandate 
a certain style.  But probably best - especially when new to things here 
- to adopt the style already used by those you intend to work closely 
with (i.e. not me since you choose not to use CDBS).
