Hello Ubuntu developers, We have long had a policy for adding standard meta information to patches that we apply to Ubuntu, to make it easier to track their origin, upstream status, etc.
Debian now introduced a new policy proposal which has the same spirit, but a slightly different format (mainly to stay compatible with git-formatted patches): http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep3/ After a discussion on ubuntu-devel, it now turns out that the Debian proposal is stable enough to become widely adopted. Thus our own policy for this  now by and large is just a pointer to DEP-3. So it would be nice if from now on we could migrate to that new format over time. This is of course neither urgent, nor bound to a particular release. Thanks all, Martin  https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2009-September/029212.html  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/PatchTaggingGuidelines -- Martin Pitt | http://www.piware.de Ubuntu Developer (www.ubuntu.com) | Debian Developer (www.debian.org)
