Me too, I totally agree with you. I think we should try to reach a consensus
on the basic guidelines to try to follow in all the packages, concerning at
least use or not of a patching system (dpatch) and the packaging helper to use
(I see that no decision has been reached yet about whether to use Debhelper or

I think it would be nice that everyone who has reasons for or against anything
write them so we can have an opinion and can reach a collective decision on
that. The goal might be to gradually move from the packages we currently have
to the packaging system we decide in all of our packages, so anyone in the
group can help in any package.

I don't know how to use CDBS and have usually avoided to use Dpatch, so I
cannot talk about their pros and cons. What I see is that those tools mean a
higher entry barrier for many people packaging, but that's something that can
