Best Lucid Feature: edit-patch

Did you ever have to deal with source packages and found the variety of patch systems simply mind-boggling? I certainly have.

Enter: the unstoppable Michael Vogt.

If you are running lucid and don’t have ubuntu-dev-tools installed, install it now. Forget about all the crazy stuff and incantations you might need for random patch system X, Y or Z (it supports cdbs, dpatch and quilt at the moment), just type:

edit-patch <name-of-patch>

and it will do the rest for you, even remind you do make use of the patch tagging guidelines.

Michael simply rocks! Give him a hug and if you find bugs in edit-patch, file them.
