Re: Bug#250202: Standardizing make target for 'patch' and 'upstream-source'

Well, the easiest way would be to unpack all patches into
debian/patches. If you want to build the source package, you then
deapply all patches there (well, it moves the point where this fails if
the author changed the source from debian/rules clean to dpkg-source -b)
and then do a normal diff for the rest (like today). This would allow
people to contine their bad habit of keeping all Debian changes in a
.diff.gz-like thing.
