patch-modifying-debian-files

A patch stored in debian/patches/ modifies or creates files in the debian folder, but that folder is already under the maintainer's exclusive control.

It may be more appropriate to patch or create files in the upstream directory hierarchy, but often it is easier to place a copy in the debian folder.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ea05801. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/patches/quilt.
