Yesterday, when adding a patch to qutecom to fix FTBFS with GCC 4.4, I noticed
that the debian/patches directory for that package was split into three
subdirectories. To quote its README:
> generic: Possibly relevant for upstream adoption.
> head: Grabbed from upstream development.
> debian: Only relevant for official Debian release.
Are there any other packages using this kind of separation? I thought it was a
neat idea that could be adopted for more packages, especially with a lot of
patches from different sources. (I immediately remembered f-spot.)
Perhaps Ubuntu could also extend this model by adding an "ubuntu" directory,
holding Ubuntu-specific patches that do not need to be sent to upstream or Debian.
