... you see the problem? :-)
There is some name space pollution and the tasks page generating job
just has fetched the description of "the" orange package ...
So it seems that the package for "your" orange needs to be renamed
(or you start discussing with the authors of the other orange).

There are other packages which are relying on SVN commits.  I personally
have the impression that this is asking for trouble in several ways.  For
Debian it is: You need Free Sourcecode, that's all.

Well, there is other scientific software that is managing some kind
of release management.  What exactly makes your software so specific
that this should not be possible?  (just provoking :-))

This is the first question for trouble and I do not have a sane
answer for this.
