May I ask why?  We rarely change anything of upstream, and even then the
consesus seems to be to use some kind of patch management system.  So
why do we put the full source under version control?

wget http://our.project.webspace/package-foo.orig.tar.gz
tar -xzvf package-foo.orig.tar.gz
cd package-foo
svn export /where/ever/the/debian/dir/is
dpkg-builspackage -uc -us -S -rfakeroot

Doesn't seem that painfull to me; you need to do most of that anyway.

Yours sincerely,
