Hello, since Debian ftpmasters have made it possible to upload source packages packaged in the next generation formats:
1) I don't see any blockers to use pristine KDE upstream tarballs anymore (renamed to appropriate orig.tar.bz2 of course). 2) What about dpkg-source format 3.0 (quilt) for all official KDE packages? I tested it and I was sort of pleased with results. Added benefits: * no quilt build dependency; * no need to add/remove quilt build dependency when the first patch is added / all patches are removed; * no patch system class in debian/rules (will need newer pkg-kde-tools). Disadvantages: * if our packages were kept upstream sources in packaging VCS, it would be a bit of inconvenient (esp. in the context of svn) not to commit debian-patched upstream files or do `quilt pop -a` after each test build. But since we only keep debian/ under VCS, I don't see any blockers or regressions in a workflow. -- Modestas Vainius <modes...@vainius.eu>
