This is a catalogue of Python 2 and 3 patches and patch numbers for Fedora and RHEL. It does not include all patches. It serves two purposes:

Picking numbers for new patches

Patch numbers should match between all spec files (Python 2/3, Fedora/EL/SCL). Since not all patches appear in all specs, this is tricky to keep track of (and thus it was not always done). This global catalogue should help.

Note that the patch doesn't have to be exactly the same in each branch: there will be slight differences if the patch (e.g. due to different Python 2/3 differences). However, if the patch fixes the same issue, then it should have the same number across all branches.

If you can, use the same patch name and comment in the spec file, to improve diff output when comparing them.

Documenting status of the patches

Patches should primarily be documented in the spec files. However, for some information it's not practical to update all specs. An example is current upstreaming status: the spec comment should link to an upstream bug if one exists, but "volatile" notes can be put in this global catalogue.
