quilt 0.46-5 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

quilt (0.46-5) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Martin Quinson ]
  * Acknowledge NMU (thanks Raphael).
    This also Closes: #454351 (doc in erroneous section Apps/Text)
  * debian/control: add Vcs-git, Vcs-browser and homepage fields.
  * Remove file patches/generic-awk from the debian diff 
    (was a leftover of the creation of debian/patches/generic-awk)
  * debian/rules: filter \sh{.*} constructs in the hevea output,
    such that HTML documentation is more readable [Rafael Laboissiere]
    Closes: #471453 (Make HTML documentation more readable)
  * pass --with-sendmail to configure, not --with-mta, and remove the
    /usr/share/quilt/compat/sendmail link.
    Closes: #443419 (quilt mail command cannot find sendmail)
  * Closes: #458285 (spelling error in /usr/share/quilt/quilt.make)
  * patches/arch_all: in backup-files.in:link_or_copy_file()
    redirect the errors comming from ls to /dev/null to reduce noise
    when ln is not usable (for example on AFS). Should be harmless
    since cp is used as backup when ln fails. [Russ Allbery]
    Closes: #458158 (extra noise when cross-directory symlinks aren't supported)
  * patches/unset_posix_strict_conformance_variables (new):
    unset POSIXLY_CORRECT _POSIX2_VERSION POSIXLY_PEDANTIC from quilt
    since they force patch to run in interactive manner (doh!)
    Closes: #462578 (quilt: breaks when POSIXLY_CORRECT=1)
  * Add a dpatch2quilt.sh script (to /usr/share/doc/quilt/examples) to
    ease the conversion from dpatch to quilt
    Closes: #464663 (sample script for dpatch -> quilt conversions)
  * Pass --no-print-directory to make while generating the man page to
    counter the fact that the top-level make (ie, debian/rules) pass
    -w to all childs. Patch by Romain Francoise, thanks.
    Closes: #436936 (build process has contaminated the manpage)

  [ Raphael Hertzog ]
  * Add myself to Uploaders.
  * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.0:
    - support patch/unpatch rules in patchsys-quilt.mk
    - support patch/unpatch rules in debian/rules
  * Switch to debhelper 5, adjust debian/compat and build-depends.
  * Remove minimal version in the cdbs build-dependency, even oldstable
    has a high-enough version.
  * patchsys-quilt.mk: don't try to apply patches in $(DEB_SRCDIR) but in
    current directory. This is best for compatibility with the upcoming "3.0
    (quilt)" source package format and the two only packages which are
    affected by this change have already been fixed (see #485142, #485163).
    Closes: #485835

quilt: Tool to work with series of patches

 Quilt manages a series of patches by keeping track of the changes
 each of them makes. They are logically organized as a stack, and you can
 apply, un-apply, refresh them easily by traveling into the stack (push/pop).
 .
 Quilt is good for managing additional patches applied to a package received
 as a tarball or maintained in another version control system. The stacked
 organization is proven to be efficient for the management of very large patch
 sets (more than hundred patches). As matter of fact, it was designed by and
 for linux kernel hackers (Andrew Morton, from the -mm branch, is the
 original author), and its main use by the current upstream maintainer is to
 manage the (hundreds of) patches against the kernel made for the SUSE
 distribution.
 .
 This package completely integrates into the CDBS, allowing maintainers
 using this new paradigm for their packaging scripts to benefit from the
 comfort of quilt when editing their diff against upstream. The package
 also provides some basic support for those not using CDBS.
 .
 http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/quilt is the current best approximation
 of an upstream homepage.
