While you're doing merges and upstream updates, you're probably trying
to work out what you did six months ago; maybe someone else did it!

Some packages you need to download patches from some other website
(where they're kept up to date).

Others you might have to follow certain steps to regenerate files, etc.

Figuring this out, or remembering it, each time is tedious.

I'd encourage you all, as you do this, to document what steps you take,
where you get the patches, why certain decisions were made, etc.

I suggest we use a common debian/README.ubuntu-dev file to do this.
