Package: src:xiphos
Version: 3.1.5+dfsg
Severity: important
Tags: patch

I made a trial version of a package based on the new release, and I'm
attaching what I did as a patch against the 3.1.5+dfsg-1 debian directory.
Hopefully this will give someone else a headstart on making an actual

I also had to create a modified "dfsg" tarball using the following procedure:

 * Unpack upstream tarball
 * Rename directory by adding +dfsg suffix
 * Remove debian directory
 * Unpack waf using commands from https://wiki.debian.org/UnpackWaf
 * Repack tarball with appropriate .orig.tar.xz name

Hope this helps.
