Currently no patches. Ubuntu uses our stuff straight. We want to try
to keep it that way. :)

ALSA doesn't provide change logs so we add ALSA's release announcement
to the tops of the various debian/changelog.ALSA files every time. Boring
but easy. I have just done this for alsa-driver and committed it.

This is the difficult part. Almost every time there is a new release
upstream adds new drivers. These are listed in the upstream configure file
--with-cards=<list> compile driver for cards in <list>;
cards may be separated with commas;
'all' compiles all drivers;
Possible cards are:
We support the building of alsa-modules packages with arbitrary subsets of
drivers from this list. But we don't read the list from here; we maintain
a separate list in debian/ALSA-card-list. So the latter has to be synced
with the former. ALSA-card-list also contains a short description of each
driver, so for each new driver we have to create a short descriptions based
on whatever information we can find in the tarball, including the source
files and files in the doc/ directory.
This is your next mission.
