This really is a strange post.

The patch files are all contained separately within the source rpms.

The exceptions are redhat-artwork and anaconda-images where the graphic 
files are contained with the source rpm, and anaconda itself where there 
are wholesale changes.

I dont know what 'questions and confusion' you are referring to.
