For that package you could use either python-pysvn[1]_ or pysvn[2]_.

.. _[1]: 'They should take into account the upstream name of the python 
module. This makes a package name format of python-$NAME. When in doubt, 
use the name of the module that you type to import it in a script.'  You 
use "import pysvn" so $NAME = pysvn there.

.. _[2]: 'There is an exception to this rule. If the upstream source has 
"py" (or "Py") in its name, you can use that name for the package. So, 
for example, pygtk is acceptable.'  So a plain pysvn is fine.
