dh_quilt_patch - apply patches listed in debian/patches/series
dh_quilt_patch [debhelper options]
dh_quilt_patch simply calls quilt push -a after having set the environment variable QUILT_PATCHES to debian/patches. All patches listed in debian/patches/series are then applied in the current directory. The command does not fail if the patches have already been applied. You can use another directory instead of debian/patches by setting (and exporting) the environment variable QUILT_PATCH_DIR.
dh_quilt_patch is usually called indirectly in a rules file via the dh command. %: dh $@ --with quilt It can also be direcly called at the start of the build (or configure) rule. build: dh_quilt_patch ./configure $(MAKE)
This tool is useless if you use the source package format 3.0 (quilt). Consider switching to this source format if you haven't done it yet.
