Thanks for the suggestions.  Note that I'm forwarding this manually to the 
list since it discards non-subscriber posts (too much spam).

I also think that bzr is a good solution for that kind of stuff.
However, I use Mercurial Queues (mq) for tracking svn repositories and
generating patches.

Since R. Bernstein uses Emacs, let me do some advertisement for emacs dvc:

I have added emacs support for mq. That way I can easily build patches
for upstream projects.

If anyone would like to try this setup, feel free to ask  ;-)
