deb3 - convert debian source package to new 3.0 (quilt) format
deb3 converts debian source packages which use series of patches from
1.0 format to new 3.0 (quilt) format while adjusting contents in
debian/patches. This is run from the package top level directory. If
run without argument, deb3 guesses source structure. Following formats
are auto detected.
o cdbs (simple-patchsys.mk)
o dbs (dbs-build.mk)
You can force particular conversion using argument.
quilt conversion for dh_quilt_patch/dh_quilt_unpatch
dpatch conversion for dpatch
0 conversion for dbs and cdbs made with -p 0 patches (default)
1 conversion for dbs and cdbs made with -p 1 patches
2 conversion for dbs and cdbs made with -p 2 patches
TERMINATING THE CONVERSION
This deb3 program only provides a starting point. After its execution,
further modifications are needed to your package. Typical changes are:
o Build-Depends: you should remove cdbs, dpatch and quilt. Instead,
you should add debhelper (>= 7.0.50~)
o Add override_dh_* targets to debian/rules to address special cases.
o Remove --with quilt from the debian/rules, if it uses the dh $@ syn-
You can find tutorial for packaging using this new dh $@ style and new
3.0 (quilt) source format in the maint-guide package. It is also
