May I ask why you are not using svn-buildpackage and the functions it
offers? Am I supposed to export into an unpacked upstream tarball?

And why are you, Jörg, not yet in Uploaders?

I would prefer either to become a (rather inactive) member of the team
(I can assist in formatting the sources ready for svn-buildpackage) or
to be given a link to a finished source package (with a correct
changelog) which I would then build into a binary package, sign it (if
it is lintian clean) and give this package back to you so that you
can upload the package with my signature after you have tested it.
