Is there a common "best practice" procedure on how to deal with new 
upstream releases then? I imagine that I unpack an upstream tarball, put 
it under (D)RCS control and work on the debian/ directory. Then a new 
upstream tarball is released. Do I just unpack it and do a merge? How do 
tell my own patches (that I usually do in dpatch) from the upstream
