I have a patch against vim which applies to packaged version. I would like to automate this, so that when new ubuntu is released, the newer unpatched vim gets patched & built using a recipe. I read documentation on recipes, though I am not sure how to apply a patch.
Should I create branch with modified source and have the recipe merge it? How does that handle when patched branch gets out-of-date with the distro package in newer release? (The patch will very likely still apply; but will the branches be able to merge as well?)
