If you look at the changelog, you can see that the patches have
been *renumbered*

That is still a different filename.

The way I did it was:
* renumber patch: 0102-Fix-disable-callback-gnome-shell-3.30-
compatibility.patch (was 0002)

Don't argue with that stupid bot.

Maybe it's time to make the bot slightly less stupid?

Currently it works in a "reject early, reject often" way, which makes it
terribly annoying - and one of the results is that a number of packages
now have a patches.tar.gz which fools the bot, but makes contributions
harder (unpack the tarball, change a patch, re-pack the tarball).

The bot would be less annoying if it would reject only once (when
creating a SR) - without rejecting reopened SRs (reopening basically
translates to "I know what I'm doing.")

And/or don't reject a SR if it contains a keyword, maybe something like
!damnbot ;-)

(No, I don't volunteer to adjust the bot ;-)
