  I'm no svn-buildpackage expert (especially here ;-)...), but here is
what I understood:

  * when you tag a package with svn-buildpackage --svn-tag-only (or
something similar), it needs to know the URL of the target 'tags' directory.
  * if you did the original import with svn-inject, then, most probably,
this information is contained inside a package/.svn/deb-layout file.
  * this file does not come with other's people checkouts, so
svn-buildpackage looks for appropriate properties on the debian/
directory; see:

  ~/packages/games/gunroar svn proplist -v debian
Properties on 'debian':
  svn-bp:tagsUrl :
  mergeWithUpstream : 1

  When these properties are set up properly (without a login@... field),
svn-buildpackage --svn-tag-only works out of the box.

  * to add them, use something like:

svn propset svn-bp:tagsUrl
svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-games/packages/tags/gunroar debian

  Is that clear ?



PS: I'm not sure now, but it seems that quite often, svn-buildpackage
will guess the right location even without the svn-bp:tagsUrl property.
