there any way to fix them up after the fact?

Yes, but is not documented. Your comments are welcome to the
svn-buildpackage corresponding bug:


Adding them will help me document the procedure so is possible to
reproduce manually svn-bp's behaviour.

Here is what I have been doing. I'll add them to the bug if they seem correct:

Make sure there is a tags dir:

svn mkdir svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-games/packages/tags/<package>

Make sure you have uploaded the orig.tar.gz:

scp <package_name_and_version>.orig.tar.gz \

Set the properties:

svn propset mergeWithUpstream 1 debian
svn propset svn-bp:origUrl "http://pkg-games.alioth.debian.org/tarballs/<package_name_and_version>.orig.tar.gz" debian svn propset svn-bp:tagsUrl "svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-games/packages/tags/<package>" debian

The last part is the worst. If the package has source modified outside of the Debian dir. I personally have been moving those to quilt patches (after Vincent pointed them out to me) as I think that is the best way to handle them. Others may have a different opinion. So I don't really know how to handle them properly if you want to just leave them in the diff.
