Did you use svn-inject to import the packages ? Please do use it, as
it takes care of many small details you definitely don't want to do
Please have a look at
http://wiki.debian.org/Games/SVN (section To import your package to SVN)
I'm fixing shisen.app manually; I put the commands here, as it might
be useful for others as well.
svn propset mergeWithUpstream 1 debian
[this says that you're only merging the 'debian part' with original
sources: only the debian diff is in the SVN]
svn propset svn-bp:tagsUrl
[this says where to put the tags when a package has been uploaded.]
[there is no need to create the tags directory as you already did that]
Additionally, not everything is the diff is in the debian package. On
the package I downloaded from mentors, I have:
22:29 vincent@tanyaivinco ~ lsdiff -z shisen.app_1.2.0-7.diff.gz
This is bad as it makes svn-buildpackage fail to build, even if I only
want to build the source package. To fix this, either you should include
main.m, GNUmakefile... in the trunk directory (but you don't want that)
or you should gather those as patches with your favorite patching system
and add them to the SVN.
Please play around with svn-buildpackage (in a local repository on
your machine if you're scared of breaking something), it is a really
convenient tool to work with once you're used to it (and it did take me
time to get used).
