Package: jadetex
Version: 3.13-10
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: 3.0-quilt-by-default

To prepare a possible switch to the new source package format "3.0
(quilt)" [1], I converted all source packages and rebuilt the packages
afterwards to see what breaks, and jadetex does break. To reproduce the
problem you can do this:
$ apt-get source jadetex
$ mkdir -p jadetex-3.13/debian/source
$ echo "3.0 (quilt)" >jadetex-3.13/debian/source/format
$ dpkg-source -b jadetex-3.13
$ dpkg-source -x jadetex_3.13-10.dsc
$ cd jadetex-3.13 && debuild -us -uc

In this process, if the .diff.gz contains changes to upstream files,
dpkg-source will have created a corresponding patch in
debian/patches/debian-changes-3.13-10 and will have registered that
patch in a quilt series (debian/patches/series, it is created if needed).
All the patches listed in the "series" file are applied directly during
the extraction (dpkg-source -x). quilt itself is used if available (and
will thus lead to the creation of the .pc directory), otherwise
dpkg-source applies the patches by itself. For more information about the
new source package format see the manual page dpkg-source(1).

In the case of jadetex, it fails to build when the patches are
already applied as quilt push -a will exit with error code 2.
To avoid this kind of mistakes, you should really not reinvent the wheel
and simply use /usr/share/quilt/quilt.make provided by quilt (include it
and add the proper target dependencies).

as announced in http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2010/05/msg00010.html
the dpkg team no longer has any plan to switch the default source format
to "3.0 (quilt)" and as such this bug is meaningless.

However you have to create a debian/source/format file and be explicit
about the format that you want. That file will become mandatory in the
future. You are still highly encouraged to use one of the newer formats:
either "3.0 (quilt)" or "3.0 (native)".


Thanks for your work.
