       svn-upgrade - upgrade source package from a new upstream revision


       svn-upgrade newsource [options]


       svn-upgrade modifies a Debian package source located in a Subversion repository, upgrading
       it to a new upstream release. The repository filesystem tree must be in the format created
       by svn-inject.


       svn-upgrade accepts the following options on the command-line:

       -V STRING | --version STRING
           Forces a different upstream version string

           Default: Off.

       -c | --clean
           Runs make clean and removes the debian/ directory in the new source.

           Default: Off.

       -P STRING | --packagename STRING
           Forces a different package name

           Default: Off.

       -v | --verbose
           More verbose program output

           Default: Off.

       -r | --replay-conflicting
           Extra cleanup run: replaces all conflicting files with upstream versions. Review of
           svn status output before doing that could make sense.

           Default: Off.

       -N | --noautodch
           Upgrade without making a new changelog entry.

           Default: Make the changelog entry.

       -u | --uscan
           Use uscan to download the new version.

           Turn off interactive mode.

           In noninteractive mode, ignore errors.

       --ignored-files-action STRING
           Make files that are ignored due to subversion ignore patterns to be 'import'ed or

       -e | --auto-epoch
           Automatically increase version epoch if the new upstream version is not greater than
           the current.

           Run debclean before merging the new upstream source.

       Tarballs must be compressed with gzip or bzip2.
