The new source format "3.0 (quilt)" seems to hit the road, and since we want to keep our role as an avant-garde^W^W^W^W^W^W^W^W^W it would have some advantages for us (especially dealing with our "bundle packages" containing several upstream tarballs but also easier handling of patches - no need for de-/quiltification) it is maybe appropriate to start dicussing a roadmap following up on some random talks on IRC and some first experiments (thanks, Ansgar). AFAIK what's missing is: - dh-make-perl support - full svn-buildpackage support (esp. for multiple tarballs) What does everybody think -- should me start to move more in that direction? What else is missing? What needs to happen?
I use "3.0 (quilt)" and like it, despite its quirks.But I use git and cdbs, so my experiences are probably of little value here.
Just mentioning, in case someone should run into challenges using similar packaging style.
