It needed to be repackaged (upstream contained binaries). So the tarball
needs to be stored somewhere, to enable collaborative development. This
location was suggested by Russ Allbery:

It has the advantage that you can check out the trunk together with the
tarball and use svn-buildpackage directly. Otherwise you would have to get
the tarball from some other location and copy it manually to the right

There is a debian/svn-layout file which tells svn-buildpackage about the
layout. So, to build the package:

$ svn co svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-java/trunk/nekohtml
$ cd nekohtml/nekohtml
$ svn-buildpackage

It will be built in build-area under the top-level directory.

(Of course, if you don't need the orig tarball, just check out
pkg-java/trunk/nekohtml/nekohtml and work on that.)

Also note that trunk/nekohtml is just an integration branch. The feature
branches (where the actual work takes place) are at
