Eh, this is a problem often present also in other software, but it depends
definitively on upstream dev team ideas. Grass developers had no time/interest
in supporting packaging and indeed have dropped the debian/ dir for years.
The same did not happen in the qgis world, because their release cycle is
too fast for Debian. I found practical cloning and merging via git 
their tree adding minimal changes when required: something a bit more
complicated than the usual upstream+debian git branch, but it works.
