Very nice.

I would suggest to add a series file which allows people to use the
quilt tool[1] to apply all patches in one run.

This file should look atm like:


If the patch isn't applied with -p1 add -pnum after the patch filename.

Andreas Gruenbacher has written a document[2] about 'How To Survive With
Many Patches Introduction to Quilt'.  We survived Kernel 2.4 with it.

I've added and a series
file to the location.

Download fetch-patches to your ~/bin/ dir and then:

tar xfj samba-3.0.x.tar.gz
cd samba-3.0.x
quilt push -a
cd source

and build Samba as usual.
