Patch systems in packages

	Currently there is no policy about how to make changes in the packages,
there are some good practices and a lot of developers try to use patch
systems whenever they can and don't touch the source code outside
debian/ directly, but that's still at the developer's discretion. 
	For that reason i wanted to start a discussion on the topic, to start
working with debian on preparing the packages with a patch system, so we
(and other derivatives) can make patches without the need of changing
the packaging. Also i will suggest to the revu reviewers to ask the
packagers to add a patch system on their packages. 
	What did you think about it? Any comments?
