Hi Denys,

There is a glitch in the way you roll patches for the downloads/
directory.

See first hunk of
http://cgit.openembedded.net/cgit.cgi/openembedded/commit/?id=92e33f3a889d9bd91907869f151e5144f459bb25
i.e. the hush.patch.
This file changed content since you changed the time and thus it's
sha256 sum changed, resulting in grief.

Is there any way you can:
- avoid changing the checksum of existing patch-files
- in case you follow-up patch in fixes-, provide
  glob-understandable ordering of patches, like prefixing them with
  %0.3d or provide quiltrc or an ordered list or something?

Many thanks in advance for considering these suggestions and cheers,
