Build of firebird from sources - actually it's the latest from fb1.5
branch, so it's the upcoming fb1.5.1.
Now as a complete newbe to debian packaging, and looking at:
How do I use the "experimental.diff.gz" patch, to build the packages.
Mainly i want to know what commands to I run:
$patch -p0 < /tmp/firebird2..experimental.diff
$dpkg-deb --build ?

No, not in this run, other than to change configure.in to include
libncurses (seems to vary a bit per platform).

Eather should do, Im working on the latest B1_5_Release branch.
I suppose which one we release, depends upon the timing of the fb1.5.1
release. As I understand the work has finished, it has some bugfixes,
and it's supposed to be released "soon" - but failing that we could
fallback to 1.5.
But currently it'd give me a sense of accomplishment to actually build a
"deb" file :-).
PS: I replied to list, hope that's ok.
