Help with svn-buildpackage
I need a bit of advice on using svn-buildpackage, using the upstream
merge mode. Basically I would like to keep the upstream tarballs in
the repository, untouched so that hashes and signatures match. Is
there a way to do this so that svn-buildpackage knows how to find
them? Otherwise, other people have to replicate the local directory
structure of svn-buildpackage when they want to build.
I can manually create a tarballs directory in the repo, but then
collaborators would have to manually check them out, and I'd have to
have every single release in there for all revisions (otherwise, how
will svn-buildpackage know when building from an old tagged package
version?). Is there a better way?
