Perhaps OT, but I cannot resist: Have you discussed the overall workflow
here? Cloning package, unpack sources, create patches, make a build,
revise patches, finalize the spec, perhaps upstream to package owner...
All this is IMHO quite messy with a lot of manual steps (?). In the best
of worlds I could:
- With a single command create an unpacked source directory with a
patch series reflecting the spec patches.
- After creating/editing patches, just build using the new patchset.
- When the patch(es) are finalized, have the spec updated in a single
command e. g., syncing the spec with a git or quilt series or so.
- Of course, something like a pull request would be nice. But isn't it
the icing on the cake in this context?
Or is it perhaps already possible, I just missed how to do it?
