 our goal is to make 0xx patches disappear by moving them either to 3xx

-Short HOWTO for quilt
-The quilt system can be assimilated to a Pile Of Patches management system.
-Patches live in debian/patches, the working directory is "."
-The basic commands are (abbreviation accepted):
-quilt push (asks to apply the next patch in the pile)
-quilt pop  (removes the current patch and go up in the pile)
-quilt refresh (take the current changes in tree onto the patch)
-When a file is changed by a patch, quilt saves it somewhere under .pc on
-application. This is how it can refresh it afterward (comparing the version
-in .pc and the one you currently have in your working dir).
-There are three common pitfalls with quilt:
- - doing "quilt pop" without doing "quilt refresh". The version of current
-     dir is replaced with the version of the .pc dir. Your changes are lost.
-   Quilt wont let you do so, but you can force it with '-f' if you're fool.
- - editing a file with is not in the patch yet. Quilt didn't do any previous
-     backup.
-   Use "quilt add" to add files to patches.
-   Set $EDITOR and use "quilt edit" to edit a file, and add it onto the
-     patch if needed.
- - If you update your working directory, patches may not revert cleanly.
-   It is thus recommended to use "quilt pop -a" before updating with
-   "svn up".
-   If you forget (and run into trouble), you may want to remove the whole
-   shadow-?.?.? directory. If you use the makefile which is in the upper
-   directory (trunk/), shadow-?.?.?/debian/patches is a link to
-   debian/patches, so this dirctory does not contain any valuable info.
-The documentation is quite well done, I think. "quilt -h" will list you the
-commands. "quilt <cmd> -h" will give you some hints about it. "man quilt" is
-a reference documentation. /usr/share/doc/quilt/quilt.pdf.gz is a complete
-manual, with tutorial.
