Re: quilt 3.0 source format and dpkg-source/dpkg-buildpackage

Note that those won't be accepted into the archive (at least not without
patches to dak).  While I'm not an ftp-master, I would be surprised if
they were happy to take patches for a 3.0 (simple-patchsys).  Quilt
isn't that complicated to use and should just replace simple-patchsys,
dbs and similar patch systems.
