Releasing

If this is a new package, you need to do the following for tagging to work (from the root of the svn checkout of the package):

svn propset svn-bp:tagsUrl svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-gnome/tags/package-name debian/

You can alternatively run the pkg-gnome/tools/sbp-add-tags-support script from your package’s svn directory. That script will create the tags directory and will set the tagsUrl property.

To release use the following:

dch -r                             # Changes the distribution from UNRELEASED to unstable
svn-buildpackage --svn-only-tag    # Creates a tag

Then sign and upload your package (or ask on #debian-gnome for someone to sponsor it).
