git and quilt


I read through the git-buildpackage docs and also a HOWTO by Russ
Allbery [1] regarding git and Debian packaging. I am wondering if those
who use git to manage their source package development are also using
the debian/patches mechanism for modifying the upstream tarball.

I receive the following error from lintian and am looking for some
guidance/best practices.

% lintian --pedantic cdpr_2.3-3.dsc
P: cdpr source: direct-changes-in-diff-but-no-patch-system Makefile and
1 more

I am using git with no debian/patches (quilt/dpatch) to manage the cdpr

Thanks for the tips,
