I would like to read that. > > I'd like to read it too, but I use dpatch! :P I use quilt and I even convinced Steve that using it for samba could be good....:-) (I failed for cdbs, but apparently using cdbs is not cute....while I personnally think it simplifies life a lot for very simple packages) However, The only explanation I can give is that it has been awfully simpler to understand for me than dpatch was. Don't ask me why exactly, that's just a dummy point of view, indeed. Quilt is better for those DD who are taken by our DPL as examples of "everybody can become a DD". Does that sound as a good rationale? :-) The only problem one could have with quilt is that it is in low maintenance mode irght now, because Martin Quinson hasn't much time.... OTOH, it just works for me so I don't even mind..
