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.
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
