Best practices for patch management on RPM based packages?

Most of the packages I work with have very few patches so it's not all
that difficult, but there are a couple of packages I'm working with
that have a lot of patches and one of them has a very active upstream
(which is a good thing!) but that also means that the patches need
frequent adjustment.

I like the idea of quilt but I can't seem to find the magic recipe to
get it to integrate with rpmbuild.

Any ideas?
