Do not have .pc in dgit's git history for format `3.0 (quilt)'
packages. * When constructing a git tree from a .dsc (which we do by unpacking it in a temporary directory), drop any .pc directory. * Rewrite the quilt fixup preparation: we now fake up a .dsc so that we can regenerate the .pc, which is needed by dpkg-source. * If after we have committed any quilt fixup, there is a .pc directory, make a commit removing it. * We now construct new quilt patches in a temporary directory, so there is no problem about ignored files or --ignore-dirty. Remove the mention of this limitation from the manpage. * Be less critical of `3.0 (quilt)' and improve the documentation relating to the interaction between dpkg-source and dgit. Mention git-dpm. * When `committing quilty patches', do not re-add a deleted .pc directory (while still permitting updates to an existing .pc - although the .pc will then disappear in the next commit). * In the test suite, disregard differences found in .pc. * cmd_quilt_fixup sets $package for the benefit of build_maybe_quilt_fixup

dgit (0.23~) unstable; urgency=low
+ * New handling for .pc directory: dgit history now no longer contains
+ .pc at all. It is deleted whenever we find it. (When doing quilt
+ fixup, we recreate a suitable .pc in a temporary directory so that we
+ can do dpkg-source --comit.) Closes:#764606. INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE -
+ older versions of dgit will have trouble with these git histories.
* Replace many calls to stat with new wrapper stat_exists; improves
error handling and simplifies the code.
