Re: [opensuse-packaging] Patches naming (include source version?)

If there's a bug in foo 1.2.4 *and* you know for sure
this is fixed in already released foo 1.2.5 then it's ok
to use the version number.

In this special case one could even use in the spec file
the "forbidden" form

Patch123: foo-%{version}-backported_fix.diff

to let it intentionally break early if that Patch123 still
exists after a version upgrade (the crucial word is "early").

This is only meant as an example for hwo much "it depends".
