Ok, I went with git-import-dsc since I've had these packages around for
a while in launchpad.  The git-buildpackage tools are much easier, I
wish I'd seen that before :).  

I deleted pd-motex.git and I uploaded it again.  My only question is the
debian version is currently -0.0.  Is that a problem?  I figure it can
be bumped to -1 by whoever becomes the 'official' sponsor.
