dpatch is an easy to use patch system for Debian packages, somewhat
similar to the dbs package, but much simpler to use.
It lets you store patches and other simple customization templates in
debian/patches and otherwise does not require much reorganization of
your source tree. To get the patches applied at build time you simply
need to include a makefile snippet and then depend on the
patch/unpatch target in the build or clean stage of debian/rules - or
you can use the dpatch patching script directly.
It can easily apply patches only on specific architectures if needed.

dpatch (2.0.38+nmu1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.  Uploaded without delay with
maintainer's permission  (#889006 comment 44).
* Apply patch from Sven Joachim to FTBFS if awk is provided
by original-awk rather than mawk.  (Closes: #868978)
* Run dh_dpatch_patch before dh_update_autotools_config rather
than before dh_auto_configure to ensure patching happens
before autotools "retooling".  (Closes: #889006)

dpatch (2.0.38) unstable; urgency=medium
* Don't just install bash completion to a new place, remove the old files
too. Thanks Sven Joachim <svenjoac@gmx.de> for the report and the patch!
(Closes: #806337)

dpatch (2.0.37) unstable; urgency=medium
* Convert the packaging to debhelper: hopefully fixes all the
reproducible build issues.
* Install bash completion for dpatch-edit-patch to
/usr/share/bash-completion/completions, as suggested by Lintian.

dpatch (2.0.36) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Maria Valentina Marin ]
* Fix mtimes before building binary packages to produce reproducible
output. (Closes: #792954)
[ Gergely Nagy ]
* Add -n to all gzip invocations, to avoid timestamps in gzipped files,
and to aid reproducible builds. Spotted by Lintian.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6, no changes needed.
* Rearrange the copyright file to make it more succint, and to please
* Update the Vcs-* URLs to point to reachable locations.

dpatch (2.0.35) unstable; urgency=low
* Mark the package Multi-Arch: foreign, thanks Riku Voipio
<riku.voipio@linaro.org>. (Closes: #658974)
2011-12-13 - Gergely Nagy <algernon@madhouse-project.org>
dpatch (2.0.34) unstable; urgency=high
* The magic that was supposed to reset the timestamps of patched files
failed to take the --workdir option into account. This has now been
corrected. (Closes: #651948)
Urgency high because this bug breaks any build that uses --workdir,
and has patchutils installed.
2011-10-23 - Gergely Nagy <algernon@madhouse-project.org>
dpatch (2.0.33) unstable; urgency=low
* dpatch is now DEPRECATED, please do not use it for new packages.
+ NEWS and manual pages updated accordingly.
* dpatch-edit-patch does not fail anymore when there is binary data in
the patch. Patch from Ben Brown (Closes: #638864).
