That depends. If old attchments are kept, it is verfy important with
names that clearly states wether
1) it is a new version of a patch (use e.g. v1 v2 etc in the
   name. Especially remember to use v1 in the *first* one.)
2) it is an addition to another patch or
3) it is one of several sub-patches.

Today, very often, you have to browse through the comments to figure
this out.

Also: in the comments, we should be catious to name the patch instead
of writing "this", "new" or "latest", which after som new patches and
comments are of very little value.
