Default Bug#464840: svn-buildpackage: svn-do for ./debian-only dirs is very useful; please move into $PATH

Package: svn-buildpackage
Version: 0.6.23
Severity: wishlist

Hash: SHA1

Hi Eduard et al,

note i'm cc'ing debian-devel, as i see the same question recurring over
and over and over again about how nice it would be if there were some
way to merge the ./debian changes of an svn-export back into the
tree of a ./debian-only project. most specifically this has come up a
few times in the patch-management thread as a "limitation" of quilt wrt
dpatch, to which i emphatically disagree.

the thing is, there already is a way to do this, using the extremely
useful svn-do script provided in /usr/share/svn-buildpackage.
furthermore, i would say this is the "correct" way of solving this
problem, as it shouldn't be the patch management systems' responsibility
to know the details of how $developer is keeping source in $vcs.

so, is there any reason svn-do can't be dropped into /usr/bin?
