Is there a wiki or anything that explains how the rawhide build system
works?  Just for usefull info to me and maybe many others.  I just
want to know how it all works.

Also, does anyone have a good link to "how to write patches for
software"  example xmms gcc4.patch

Pretty much something that explains  why/when/how you should create a
clean patch and all.  I'm currently reading/studying c programming and
will hit c++ next.
