I struggle much less dealing with new upstream versions of packages since I
moved everything over to using cvs-buildpackage. There's no way I could begin
to keep up with 41 source packages without good revision control, and Manoj's
tools make it pretty easy to manage packages in CVS.
I haven't *quite* got all my upstreams trained to avoid symlinks in their
release tarballs yet, but I'm getting close... :-)
