Severity: wishlist

Hi,

The dpatch patch management system has been deprecated for some time. The
Lintian currently flags use of dpatch packages as an error. The new 3.0
packaging format is an improved version which, among other things, contains
patch management built-in. For more information, see:

http://wiki.debian.org/Projects/DebSrc3.0

I had some free time; see attached patch to migrate to new package
format. Note that all files in debian/patches/* are canocalized to
*.patch.

Let me know if there is anything that needs adjusting or if it is ok
to upload this version in a NMU in case you are working on other
issues needing attention.

Thanks,
Jari

I'm planning to NMU with changes listed in previous mail's patch to help
migrate away from deprecated dpatch.
Please let me know if an update is alredy being worked on, or if the
previous patch needs adjustments, or if there is anything that should
delay the NMU.
After giving seven years of heads-up, feel free to NMU I'd say :-)

Cheers,
Moritz
