dpkg-gencontrol: warning: unknown information field 'Format' in input data in
general section of control info file

Should I file a bug against dpkg-dev for that?

And another minor issue: vim doesn't know about the new Format field in
debian/control yet. It seems it [1] has to be updated.

Regarding lintian: For packages which already use quilt and have a quilt
Build-Depends, it would imho be useful if lintian issued a warning, that this
build-dep is no longer required with 3.0 (quilt).
