DESCRIPTION

       "debian/" directory scope.  A patch is created for each modified  file.
       Each  patch  is  named according to the path of the modified file, with
       "/" replaced by "___", and an extension of ".patch".

           directory.

FILES
       debian/control

       debian/
       debian/patches/
              Patches   are   extracted   to   one   of   these   directories.
              "debian/patches/" is preferred, if it exists.  If DEB_PATCHES is
              present  in the environment, it will override this behavior (see
              "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES" section below).

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       DEB_PATCHES
              When defined and points to an existing  directory,  patches  are
              extracted   in  that  directory  and  not  under  "debian/"  nor
              "debian/patches/".
