You should do that anyway, so that the upload has the right set of
stuff in the changes file.

Of course, IMO you should be using `dgit push', and if you do, dgit
will take care of this for you.  For the sysvinit tree with its
gbp-style patches-unapplied approach, and since there is no change to
the binary packages, I think all you need is

  git checkout master
  # check that git contents is good and changelog version
  #   is right right, committing any needed changes
  git-deborig   # if you don't have a suitable .orig.tar.* yet
  dgit --gbp push-source sid

(to do a source-only upload).

See dgit-maint-gbp(7),
