This won't effect me, since I don't use SVN for Debian packaging
anymore, but I'm still a bit skeptical.  If there was a tradition of
going through and cleaning each other's packages in the team then maybe
it would make more sense to me. I understand it is within the definition
of team maintenance, it just seems like an odd place to start, and
potential source of friction.

Of course if concensus amoung SVN using team members is that this is
fine, by all means, go ahead.



P.S. For the record, my upstream source is in git, and it is not there by
accident ;).
