My attempts to release a new version of starteam plugin for hudson failed with SVN authentication error[1].

I read updated "Hosting plugins" [2] and "Sonatype addendum" [3], but they talk about creating a new plugin. How can I continue with an old plugin? Articles also talk mainly about git. Is there a SVN way? I have only very limited experience with git.
