[aur-general] AUR and patches

Hi all,

what is the policy or recommendation for applying patches to upstream

For a standard package that is listed as such (ie. not a
patched version) then I assume the only patches applied are those to
make it compile and install. If I were to add some patches that enhanced
the functionality then I would create a new package in AUR that stated
that. Does that sound reasonable?
