        Martin Krafft and I jointly gave a talk at Debconf about use of
 distributed version control systems for Debian packages (this is the
 quilt/dpatch/other dimension); I would be happy to help documenting
 that aspect.

        I also have a package build system that tries not to have Debian
 specific dependencies beyond the actual packaging tools (dpkg  and
 friends -- no helper tools). And no, I don't want to start yet another
 discussion about why I have chosen to do so -- but I'll be happy to
 help craft a plain-rules-file section to this document.

Following this Path you will put an end to suffering. I have taught you
the Way after realising the removal of the arrow myself. 275
