The latest release, downloaded from
contains the patches of each commit since the 1.33.0 release.
The patches have already been applied to the source, so when
I want to apply my own patches with
for patch in *.patch; do
patch -p1 < "$patch"
these patches are also pulled in, but they've already
so the build fails.
Strangely, the release from the GitHub mirror
doesn't contain those patch files.
Could you take these files out of the release tarball?
