Done by bumping debian/compat.

Right. No worries I've cleaned it up anyway as per

I left the GPL-2+ license for debian/rules in tact because I built the
rules file based of the GPL-2+ debian/rules from the khtmlib package.
I've updated debian/copyright to reflect this. Thanks.
My debian packaging is also BSD-2 because I thought I should keep it
the same as the license of the software I'm packaging. I believe this
is my choice, but as I don't mind if I license the packaging BSD-2 or
GPL-2+, I've included both.

No worries, after adding my public ssh key at
https://alioth.debian.org/account/ I could login using
I did ./setup-repository leaflet "short desc"
Although now I think I should change the package description in
debian/control to include what upstream use which is "Leaflet is a
mobile browsers by CloudMade." I've changed that too.
I reviewed http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git and
http://wiki.debian.org/PackagingWithGit, ran git-import-dsc, and then
git pushed master upstream pristine-tar and --tags to the new repo on
git.debian.org. Hopefully I've got everything right so far.
Thanks for your help so far David.
