I ran into this trying to build - to resolve it I reverse applied the
patch that's generated to show the changes which aren't in

patch -p1 -R < /tmp/wxpython3.0_3.0.2.0+dfsg-7.diff.o0wz9v

Then git didn't think anything had changed (!) but I could build the package OK.

It's as if there's some "ignore line ending differences" setting on
somewhere, but I don't see where.

I'm afraid I can't actually build right now as I can't upgrade my build chroot:


Once doko fixes this I'll try again.
