Technical note on using subversion

There are currently no particular policies on how to employ subversion for your packages. It is however considered strongly desireable by many to use the "merge" functionality of svn-buildpackage. A quick summary can be found on the DebianMed sister pages under the subheader "Whenever preparing new packages, please:".

As a quick summary, your series of command will be similar to the following:

aliothID="smoe-guest" # adapt to what your ID is
svnrepos="svn+ssh://${aliothID}@svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-scicomp/"
svn-inject -v -o package.dsc $svnrepos
