I think I'm right because I discovered patches in horde package
with this method. Then "tla star-merge" doesn't fail but
generates *.rej files. And commit is not possible while there are
this *.rej files => patches must be adapted/removed.

I will add this method in my "Howto pkg-horde with GNU Arch" ;-)
