Best practices for patch management on RPM based packages?

I think I've gotten over the first hurdle. I ended up using the
following command:

$ quilt setup -d rpmbuild/BUILD --sourcedir rpmbuild/SOURCES/

Now that doesn't fix the persistence issue since anything in BUILD/
will be deleted on the next run of rpmbuild... In this case 'patches'
ends up being a symbolic link to ../SOURCES so that's ok, but the
'series' file will get deleted...
