Re: Sponsors and ‘UNRELEASED’ suite (was: RFS: Didjvu, Djvusmooth, Ocrodjvu, Pybtex)

It is for debian-python. I don't have any experience with other
SVN-using teams.

No idea about documentation, I've just been told to do this on the IRC
channel. The closest is:
* After upload, tag the latest revision running svn-buildpackage
  --svn-tag-only into 'package-foo' directory.
from http://python-modules.alioth.debian.org/python-modules-policy.html

Yes, it does mean the sponsoree has to state which suite is desired. But
it saves on a lot of untagging and retagging in each round of review,
and makes it a little easier to know the state of things when reading
the repo.
