Commit Debian 3.0 (quilt) metadata

[dgit (3.8) quilt-fixup]
parent 08da76fb
The Debian packaging of visual-regexp-el is maintained in git, using
the merging workflow described in dgit-maint-merge(7). There isn't a
patch queue that can be represented as a quilt series.
A detailed breakdown of the changes is available from their
canonical representation - git commits in the packaging repository.
For example, to see the changes made by the Debian maintainer in
the first upload of upstream version 1.2.3, you could use:
% git clone
% cd visual-regexp-el
% git log --oneline 1.2.3..debian/1.2.3-1 -- . ':!debian'
(If you have dgit, use `dgit clone visual-regexp-el`, rather than
plain `git clone`.)
A single combined diff, containing all the changes, follows.

It can be used to replace all matches in one go (like `replace-regexp`), or a decision can be made on each match (like `query-replace-regexp`).
