Switch debian/ubuntu packages format to quilt

Tim, Michele,

I noticed in Jessie was updated dpkg to version 0.17.5. This is a problem for 
the current package format in nightly-builds. See:

The question is how to solve this problem in a relationship of the approaching 
release date of R14.0.0?

The structure of the version that we now use in nigthly-builds and which is 
similarly used for SRU versions (here we already use ~preXXX instead of 
+rXXX), allows switch to quilt format. But to make such change in the 
nightly-builds at this time? Or suspend building Jessie packages for this 
time? Or in Jessie images on build-farm hold the previous version of dpkg for 
this time?

Note: As I mentioned in my script to prepare the source deb package I already 
use quilt format, so as soon as I'll begin prepare packages for R14.0.1, the 
problem with Jessie will be resolved for SRU. And it will be a better time to 
edit the script for nightly-builds packages.

What are your suggestions?
