I think that it was carried over using cufflinks as a template.


In any case, I agree that these overrides are not necessary.  What they
probably try to do is to circumvent the difficulties introduced by the 3.0
(quilt) format when working in Git repositories, which can be solved by either
pushing and pulling the patches by hand, or following Raphaël's recommendations
in his blog.


I prefer to just do it by hand, and more recently I started to commit directly
patches to the master branch and expose them in debian/patches for http://patch-tracker.debian.org/.
