Personally, I'm not sure this is warranted; svn-upgrade is an optional
feature of svn-buildpackage, which I don't think is used by terribly many
maintainers. And indeed, the changes related to svn_load_dirs alone are
fairly intrusive and arguably not suitable for a t-p-u upload.
If the maintainer wants to upload a targetted fix to t-p-u, I suppose we can
consider it, but it doesn't really seem all that severe of an issue to me
(speaking as an svn-buildpackage user).
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
