I added the DEP3 headers and pushed the changes to the github repo. I
also sent the patches upstream to yaml-cpp. I indicated the bug report I
put the patches in in the Bug field. I wasn't 100% sure if this should
go in the "Bug" or "Forwarded" field, but it seemed like "Bug" was most

I think I got the formatting right, but "lintian -i -I" still gives me a
"quilt-patch-missing-description" for all three of the patch files I
added. So not sure if I did it correctly.
