I have similar but different issue with 3.0 (quilt). My current
package is using quilt for patches. When I convert it to quilt 3.0 the
debian-diff patch has the usuall patches as well. So my patches are
applied and then removed by debian-diff patch resulting in FTBFS.

Are there any guidelines on how to convert package to 3.0 (quilt)
which already uses patch system? Cause my brain failed..... assuming
that dpkg does everything as designed.

(Package sword in experimental for example from my team packages)
