Yes. But svn-buildpackage automatically adds the UNRELEASED marks. It's
not necessary to commit these marks, if nothing has been changed after
tagging the package. The first one who makes a change to the package,
just does dch -i and adds the marks. But it doesn't hurt to commit the
UNRELEASED marks after --svn-tag.

That's how I do it too.

It provides several OSD skins for VDR, which are defined in XML files.

It's already packaged and working. It just may need some more testing.

The first one. Xine is used as output device. But as long as a patched
libxine is needed, this is no upload candidate.

No. But you may want to take packages from there, put them on Alioth and
upload them to Debian. Or just tell me, what packages you are interested
in and I will move them to Alioth.

Here's a list of all available packages:
