    Use source format "3.0 (quilt)" (not CDBS simple-patchsys.mk).

I think the current consensus is to avoid format "3.0 (quilt)" until support for VCS and helper tools like git-buildpackage improves.

See e.g. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=572204 for an elaborate description of this.

Until we have a clear idea on how format 3.0 (quilt) should be used with git-buildpackage, I'd suggest to revert this change.

Current consensus where? In the Multimedia team?

I fail to understand how a wishlist issue like bug#572204 should stop us from using the new source format.

If anyone is confused about how the new format works and can integrate most elegantly with our packaging style (which is similar but not entirely the same as the preferred one of Colin Watson) then let's discuss it - I believe I have found a useful set of routines, which could be put into README.source.

The new source format is great. It should be used as much as possible as quick as possible!

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
