For Debian packages, either the patching is done automatically as part of building the package (no special interface required) or the results are already included in the source package and the patches provided for reference but not applied at run time. Debian encourages providing a patch target: This target performs whatever additional actions are required to make the source ready for editing (unpacking additional upstream archives, applying patches, etc.). It is recommended to be implemented for any package where dpkg-source -x does not result in source ready for additional modification. but it's not required. -- Russ Allbery (r...@stanford.edu) <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/> _______________________________________________ vcs-pkg-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/vcs-pkg-discuss
