Re: svn-buildpackage etc., mergeWithUpstream, and dpatch/quilt/cdbs again

tjena magnus,

just a quick anecdotal experience to throw into the thread...

for all its strengths and weaknesses, i'm pretty happy with
svn-buildpackage, mergeWithUpstream, and a debian/patches dir.  for a
long time my biggest issue with this was having to maintain these
patches across upstream changes, or introduce new patches.  

i (and i'm sure others) expressed this to the svn-buildpackage peeps,
who responded with the svn-do command (dig around in /usr/share to find
it), which i now use on a regular basis.  svn-do + quilt has more or
less[1] removed the annoyances of debian-only + debian/patches in svn.


[1] there's still the issue of clutter left behind in build-area, but
    nothing a cronjob can't fix up.
