an issue most of the time, IMO. (when diffing like in this case).
Those could be integrated in pbuilder/cowbuilder/sbuild as examples, IMHO.
Is this an alias for "apt-get build-dep $1"?
apt-get source $src ?
This is "build-rdeps", already in devscripts, afaik.
I thought that the reason for this script to exist is to be used by other
scripts (like edit-patch, or add-patch) but it seems like it's not. I'm
not even sure that it helps beginners since it hides some very basic
information that every new maintainer should learn. Am I wrong here?
Encouraging people to document how they patch their package could be
a better initiative, IMHO.
Most of the script are written in Python. Rewriting them to get them
included in devscripts is too much work without benefit. devscripts
would depend on python then.
I suspect that the number of scripts to be moved is quite low. Moreover,
most of them are very simple and can be rewritten very easily. Is
rewriting them not an option?
