Using quilt in debian/rules
In a recent TODO in a package I am working on, someone wrote:
4) Read.pm is patched:
while this is a good idea we generally use quilt for managing patches
instead of changing the code directly:
While reading the quilt documentation I noted that it talks about
entering some information in debian/rules to inform the build system
that we are using quilt. But searching through the pkg-perl
subversion repo I did not find an entry regarding quilt in debian
rules for packages that used quilt _and_ dh 7.
I did a fairly quick search, but if one looks at
libclass-mop-perl/debian/rules for example you'll see no mention of
quilt while that package Build-Depends on quilt and dh (>= 7). Older
versions of debhelper have entries in their rules files.
Am I correct in assuming that dh >= 7 takes care of quilt
dependencies in Build-Depends?
