1This package uses dpatch to manage all modifications to the upstream
2source. Changes are stored in the source package as diffs in
3debian/patches and applied during the build.
4
5To get the fully patched source after unpacking the source package, cd
6to the root level of the source package and run:
7
8 debian/rules patch
9
10Removing a patch is as simple as removing its entry from the
11debian/patches/00list file, and please also remove the patch file
12itself.
13
14Creating a new patch is done with "dpatch-edit-patch patch XX_patchname"
15where you should replace XX with a new number and patchname with a
16descriptive shortname of the patch. You can then simply edit all the
17files your patch wants to edit, and then simply "exit 0" from the shell
18to actually create the patch file.
19
20To tweak an already existing patch, call "dpatch-edit-patch XX_patchname"
21and replace XX_patchname with the actual filename from debian/patches
22you want to use.
23
24To clean up afterwards again, "debian/rules unpatch" will do the
25work for you - or you can of course choose to call
26"fakeroot debian/rules clean" all together.
