Ah. I read this thread on passing, and I thought that shipped
changes in .diff.gz, and that -2 converted that to quilt and added some
patches on top of it.

Seeing that haproxy_1.3.15.2-1.diff.gz only touches files in debian/*, I
think managing the newly introduced patches with quilt in -2 is a
reasonable thing to do: unblocked.

P.S.: Please consider using /usr/share/quilt/quilt.make in your rules
file for -3, instead of implementing the logic yourself.
