Hi Paul!

Unfortunately, roundcube now needs mdb2 which is not packaged for Debian
yet. Therefore, we  need to package it before being  able to upload this
new roundcube to experimental.

> $ gunzip roundcube_0.2~alpha-2.diff.gz
> $ patch …
> $ cd trunk
> $ dch -v0.2-beta+svnXXXX Inofficial release updated to SVN rXXXX.
> $ dpkg-buildpackage

I  suppose  that  you just  have  some  patchs  that fail.  The  overall
procedure seems right.
Don't sacrifice clarity for small gains in "efficiency".
