Unless scripts touch .diff.gz directly, there should not be much difference. Actually, there is only one difference important to us: after `dpkg-source -x *.dsc`, all patches in debian/patches will be applied by dpkg-source already, and when doing `dpkg-source -b`, all patches must be applied to the extracted source tree (or dpkg-source will autopush them). Everything else are only technical details. We neither ship debian specific binary files nor any non "series" inline patches so those features of v3 are not very important for us. However, as you want to try 3.0 (quilt) with smaller packages first, we will probably get back to it some time later (maybe for late 4.4 dev packages as George suggests). On the other hand, orig.tar.bz2 (including snapshot tarballs if we do any) is effective immediately (for 4.3.3 and up) by common agreement. -- Modestas Vainius <modes...@vainius.eu>
