Look at http://wiki.opencsw.org/maintainer-tools

"gmake submitpkg" is different from "submitpkg", in that "gmake
submitpkg" does not submit a package, only tags it in subversion.

The build/test/submit model is largely informal.  It's up to you to
decide how much testing you need for your package.  It's also up to
you to find people to test your package.  When you're satisfied with
testing, you can use submitpkg to send you package to the release

I'm not entirely happy with this model, but I don't see any easy way
of improving it.  Suggestions are welcome!
