Hi Robert!

Thanks for letting me do it. This really helps, because I needed this

FYI, here's the full debian/changelog:

* New upstream release.
* Rewrote debian/copyright using parsable format 1.0.
* Now using source format 3.0 (quilt).
* Standard-Version is now 3.9.4.
* Compat and debhelper are now 9.
* X-Python-Version: >= 2.6 instead of 2.5.
* Removes embedded version of jquery.js and underscore.js, and
recommends corresponding Debian packages.
* Sets the Debian Python Modules Team as new Maintainer:, switches the
VCS field to the SVN of the team, removed debian/bzr-builddeb.conf.
* Added minor changes in long and short descriptions (so that python 2
and 3 modules don't have the same descriptions).
* The watch file now uses tags from github.
* Cleans now does rm -rf build testtools.egg-info doc/_build.
* Added doc-base registration.

I've uploaded it to experimental, but I have yet to find the way to push
the files into the SVN. I roughly know how to use git svn (and
understand git svn rebase, git svn dcommit and the like), but despite my
searches, I couldn't find out yet how to push a new package.

Maybe someone from the python module team (like Didier or Piotr), who's
using git svn, will be able to give me the few commands that I missed?
That would be really nice and helpful.
