dpatch-edit-patch works with svn-buildpackage and the layout proposed by
Ralf. If you use dpatch version in unstable you can do (from the trunk/
dir of one package):

  dpatch-edit-patch --debianonly=../upstream/<foo.orig.tar.gz> patch bla

Unfortunately you've to specify orig.tar.gz name. Alternatively you can
use the dpatch-get-origtargz patched with the patch I sent to the BTS
(see #315719): it will find the tarball in ../upstream. BTW you don't
need to patch dpatch-get-origtargz itself, just copy it somewhare, patch
it and add to your ~/.dpatch.conf something like:


After the patch you can simply invoke dpatch-edit-patch as follows:

  dpatch-edit-patch -b patch bla

(where -b is the short version of --debianonly)

Indeed :-)
