this has been recently discussed on this list, mainly between jonas and me. Jonas was a strong proponent of format 3.0, while I think git-buildpackage is not ready (enough) for it. As a compromise, Jonas proposed to unpatch in the 'clean' rules such that a 'debclean' returns the working copy to a state that is ready to be examined with 'git status'/'git commit' commands. While I can live with this compromise, I'm not very fond of having different sets of packages with different packaging policies under our team umbrella. We currently have some packages in dh6-style, some in dh7, some in cdbs, and this format discussion is adding yet another dimension of variability. So if we agree on moving to format 3.0, I think we should properly document this and convert all packages gradually. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list email@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
