Re: Flooding SVN with upstream code

this is very reasonable. Please check out a description at our wiki page

missing is a little howto on how to use quilt with svn-buildpackage together.

So if I understand this right my suggestion was not that bad.  The Wiki
just contains a further method (besides

      make -f debian/rules get-orig-source

to obtain the original source:

      apt-get source --tar-only clustalw

(BTW, if you want to have a look into the rules file of gnumed-client


you see a method how to use get-orig-source without changing debian/rules
for different upstream source versions.)

Do you think we should ask maintainers to get rid of the upstream sources
from SVN?

Kind regards
