The dpatch patch management system has been deprecated for some time. The
Lintian currently flags use of dpatch packages as an error. The new 3.0
packaging format is an improved version which, among other things, contains
patch managemet quilt built-in[1].

The package which is using old dpatch:


I had some free time and I've removed dpatch and convert all patches
to the new package to format 3.0 quilt. The changes were quite
straight forward and don't much change the current style of packaging.

Please let me know how could I best help to upgrade the package. I have
a NMU ready if you are working on other issues needing attention.
