[Build-common-hackers] Bug#389503: "cdbs-edit-patch --help" shouldn't need to read "debian/control"

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.46
Severity: normal


Anywhere where there isn't a debian/control file:

$ cdbs-edit-patch --help
dh_testdir: cannot read debian/control: No such file or directory

And where there is a debian/control file:

$ cdbs-edit-patch --help
Usage: /usr/bin/cdbs-edit-patch <patch name>

Since cdbs-edit-patch is invoked only with --help, it shouldn't need to
have a debian/control file to display the help message.

Thank you!

Best regards,
