Thanks a lot for the information. When this new version of dpkg will
be available (is it a release goal?), how will it work with
svn-buildpackage ? If I add a new patch in debian/patches, does it
mean that it will not be used unless I apply it myself on the upstream
sources as well ?

Have a nice day,
