Yeap this is intended way.

dpkg-source -x applies patches and leaves you with a patched tree.
That's the mail reason for the new format.

Unfortunately git-buildpackage has not yet been updated to handle this
in a better way. Cause we still should have debain/patches/*.patch

And I have no clue how to handle this =)

Well I can add dh --with quilt back. and switch back to format 1.0.

This format is not default yet and only ~300 packages have been
converted to it. And there are about ~70 bugs with regards to quilt
format 3.0 by default.

Plus launchpad/soyuz doesn't support it either yet.

Thank you for looking at sponsoring.

With best regards
