I'm looking for the best way to maintain a patched version of an upstream ubuntu package. Here's the situation:
We have our own server running reprepro, which would host the modified package. Our other packages are managed using git and the git packaging tools (git-dch, git-buildpackage).
I have the .diff file that contains the patch to the upstream source, which I've applied before by doing
apt-get source pkgname, applying it and running debuild. I'd like to track it properly this time using git.
What's the best process for managing this?
