Have we any specs who i can see how it shows in reality?

You can have a look at various packages in GNOME:Factory for example.

GDM in Factory has various patches that are tagged as an exampple
For me it looks very good. I'll planning to do that in my Packages too.
What is the difference between FIX-UPSTREAM and FIX-OPENSUSE?

FIX-UPSTREAM: The fix is interesting and relevant for the upstream maintainers
and should, and hopefully has already been, forwarded to the project
team of this very source code.
FIX-OPENSUSE: Those fixes/changes are relevant for openSUSE users or are not
what upstream is interested in.

Look at it like this:
- UPSTREAM mean we should be able to get rid of the patch once again, when this
fix/feature was implemented upstream
- OPENSUSE: We'll probably keep the patch forever. Generally a bad thing and a
pain for package uupdates.
