I'm always cloning the upstream repo, branch off at their release tag
and add all necessary chanages as individual git commits - first come
the generic (non-deb specific) patches, then the deb specific ones.
No text-based patches, or even magic rewriting within the build process.
The HEAD is exactly the debianized source tree, which is then fed to
dck-buildpackage.
