Exercise: a new security patch is released for PHP5. The backport need to be updated as well.

The simplest way is applying the difference between the 2 security releases, using interdiff:

# Get the security patch
gunzip *.gz
interdiff php5_5.2.0-8+etch3.diff php5_5.2.0-8+etch4.diff > php5-dsa.patch
# Apply the patch:
apt-src install php5
patch -p0 < php5-dsa.patch
# (merge the changelog manually)
debuild -us -uc

I had to struggle somehow to get apt-get buildep to work, I don't really know why.

My changelog entry:

php5 (5.2.0-8+etch4~bpo.1) sarge-backports; urgency=high

  * Apply DSA patch to the backport.
