It's a great idea. It would be nice to comment some things a bit more in
detail though, as I've never used svn-buildpackage too much (and, if possible,

(feel free to add any part of this info to the wiki page)

it would be nice to support it but not to make it strictly neccesary), I get a
bit confused with all those origURL tags, svn-bp properties and so. Where are
they supposed to be or how can we add them? Or is it the client who must add

origUrl = the field that should specify where the orig tarball is
available; is a http or ftp URL; the filename MUST be in debianized
form (e.g.: the origUrl of foo 1.02-4 can be

origUrl support is currently NOT implemented in svn-buildpackage

origUrl-s are specified currently for a few packages which are in our
repo as the value of the svn-bp:origUrl[0] property[1].

Adding, reading and modifiyng them is explained in the subversion
manual at the dedicated chapter[2].

Subversion has reserved the following property names: svn:executable,
svn:mime-type, svn:ignore, svn:keywords, svn:eol-style, svn:externals,
svn:special, svn:needs-lock. Every peroperty name starting with "svn:'
is also reserved to Subversion.

[0] it is customary to prefix the properties' names with something,
here "svn-bp", to avoid name colisions and implement some kind of
namespaces; Subversion itself uses "svn" as a prefix; I proposed
"svn-bp" in order to suggest "svn-buildpackage" namespace.
[1] In order to see which properties a file or directory has (e.g.
foo), one should type "svn pl foo" ; to see the value of the property
called "has-muscles" of "foo" one has to type "svn pg has-muscles"
