dpkg (1.16.5) unstable; urgency=low
[ Raphaël Hertzog ]
* dpkg-source will now clean up after a failed application of a quilt
patch. Closes: #652970
And it will display a message explaining the most likely cause of
failure (patch applying with fuzz).
* When dpkg-source regenerates the automatic patch (with formats "2.0"
or "3.0 (quilt)") it will keep the current patch header to avoid
losing changes made by the maintainer.
* Modify dpkg-source --commit to auto-whitelist modified binary files.
That way the same command can be used whatever kind of upstream files
has been modified.
* dpkg-source now supports a new option --no-unapply-patches to force
patches to be kept applied after build (used by formats "2.0" and "3.0
(quilt)"). Closes: #643043

large member sizes. Closes: #678933
