I've begun to play with svn-buildpackage and it is really easy, so I
think everyone should start moving his packages to the repository.

For native Debian packages, this is trivial. Just commit the whole
package in the repository, and run svn-buildpackage -rfakeroot. The
packages appear in ../build-area/.

For packages with an upstream tarball, it is almost as easy. It only
works for packages which just have a debian/ directory, though; that
means using dpatch or cdbs to modify the upstream sources. For such a
package, commit the debian/ directory in the repository. You also need
to set the mergeWithUpstream property so that svn-buildpackage knows it
should look for the .orig.tar.gz:
	svn propset mergeWithUpstream 1 debian
Then, put the .orig.tar.gz file in ../tarballs/. The only restriction is
that it should NOT be a symlink. This is probably a bug in
svn-buildpackage, but currently it has to be a regular file. After that,
running svn-buildpackage -rfakeroot builds the packages in

Happy subversing!
