use svn-buildpackage with the following repository (Debichem if you want to know):
This sort of layout doesn’t seem to be standard and *-buildpackage are confusing me. Are *-buildpackage tools really worth it? Is it easier to just export the debian/ directory into an unpacked upstream tarball?
Also, as sort of a dare, does anybody know if hg,git,bzr-buildpackage will work off of such a SVN repo?
