The upstream source contains an .svn directory. It was most likely included by accident since Subversion version control directories usually don't belong in releases. When packaging a Subversion snapshot, export from Subversion rather than checkout. If an upstream release tarball contains .svn directories, this should be reported as a bug to upstream since it can double the size of the tarball to no purpose.
