Searching for and evaluating the need for patches in building packages

In the build of new packages, It may be necessary patching the sources. Is there a “recipe” for finding out needed patches?

The only source of information I know is other distro’s src.rpm. However, other distros may apply patches that belong only to their own purposes …

I don’t know, I usually take a look to upstream and to a few other distros: Fedora, Mageia, Debian, OpenSuse, ArchLinux.


I’ll do the same.
