Description

The compare-source-package-list script source code and rationale can be found on https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Integration#Patches. As discussed on the debian-derivatives mailing-list, it would be useful if compare-source-package-list could look into debian/patches for derivatives-specific patches, and retrieve information from DEP-3 headers. The Forwarded field, in particular, would be useful to identify patches that haven't been forwarded to Debian (or upstream), but should be.
