Package: ibus
Version: 1.4.0-1
Severity: minor
Tags: patch
User: ubuntu-devel at lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu precise ubuntu-patch


The debian/README.source file included in the ibus package is inaccurate,
talking about dpatch when this package is now a dpkg 3.0 (quilt) package.
You may want to remove the file.

-This package uses dpatch to manage all modifications to the upstream
-source. Changes are stored in the source package as diffs in
-debian/patches and applied during the build.
-To get the fully patched source after unpacking the source package, cd
-to the root level of the source package and run:
-    debian/rules patch
-Removing a patch is as simple as removing its entry from the
-debian/patches/00list file, and please also remove the patch file
-Creating a new patch is done with "dpatch-edit-patch patch XX_patchname"
-where you should replace XX with a new number and patchname with a
-descriptive shortname of the patch. You can then simply edit all the
-files your patch wants to edit, and then simply "exit 0" from the shell
-to actually create the patch file.
-To tweak an already existing patch, call "dpatch-edit-patch XX_patchname"
-and replace XX_patchname with the actual filename from debian/patches
-you want to use.
-To clean up afterwards again, "debian/rules unpatch" will do the
-work for you - or you can of course choose to call
-"fakeroot debian/rules clean" all together.
