Default Bug#578864: dpkg-source -b in 3.0 (quilt) package modifies timestamp of manually changed files

Package: dpkg-dev
Severity: minor
Version: 1.15.0

Short summary: dpkg-source -b on a "3.0 (quilt)" source package with
changes not yet recorded in a quilt patch will lead to timestamp changes
on the modified files, this confuses emacs if one of the modified files is
currently open.

Hum, I was fooled by your statement that only the timestamp changed. In fact
files are modified twice to properly record the changes in the quilt
framework so the timestamps are implicitly changed in that operation (and
it was not only dpkg-source that was directly modifying the timestamp).

I'm not even sure if resetting the timestamp to match the original one
would suffice. I might have to find another solution to record the changes
in quilt.
