The packaging documentation points to the dpatch man which doesn't provide 
these detailed informations.

(I have read (the French version) of "Debian New Maintainers' Guide"
 it does not provide these informations related to omited patch listed in
 00list, neither if the order in 00list is meaningfull or not.)

If there is a detailed doc specific for dpatch I was not able to find it both 
through google [dpatch documentation site:.debian.org] (until the tenth page) 
and I don't find either dpatch specific docs through the search field on 
debian.org's index)

(well, this is just to say that I did have searched before to ask)

OK, thanks a lot for all the informations.
(and thanks for other's replies too of course;)
