Wouldn't it be good to have the number of the patch (as specified
in the .spec file) in the names of the patches?
Something like e.g.:

Patch201: p201-fix-foo.patch
Patch202: p202-avoid-crash-in-bar.patch
Patch203: p203-improve-donald.patch
Patch204: p204-add-cool-xyz-feature.patch

I guess moving the patches around in the sequence is not that
common, so this might help clarifying the order at the first
glance.
WDYT?

The wiki [0] and alike are not that specific about this.

Have a nice day,

+1 for this. It is really hard to work with projects with lots of patches now =(
