Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.46
Severity: important

A package using tarball.mk and simple-patchsys.mk (like hal,
gnome-volume-manager, or postgresql-8.1) does not clean properly after
build any more:

-------- snip --------

The reason is that this first removes build-tree/ and then tries to
unapply the patches. In earlier cdbs versions, the patches were
unapplied first and then build-tree was rm'ed. The new approach makes
sense in principle, since it is sufficient to just clean the
build-tree and the patch stamps, there is no need to unapply the
patches (so this is *much* faster).

Can you please adapt the logic to not try to unapply patches on clean
with tarball.mk?

Thank you,
