README.source: rewrite. Document dpatch

parent b3c7bc83
This package uses cdbs to manage all modifications to the upstream
source. Changes are stored in the source package as diffs in
debian/patches and applied during the build.
leafpad for Debian
------------------
To get the fully patched source after unpacking the source package, cd to
the root level of the source package and run:
debian/rules patch
The patch with the highest number will become the current patch.
To add a new set of changes, run:
cdbs-edit-patch new-patch-name
where <patch> is a descriptive name for the patch, used as the filename in
debian/patches. It should start with a number which is the number of the
current patch + 1.
You will now be dropped in a special shell, where you can make the
modifications. After editing the files, run exit to exit the shell and
save the new patch file, or "exit 230" to cancel the patch creation.
To remove all patches that are already applied, run:
debian/rules reverse-patches
This package udes dpatch. See more information at
