Ok, please look say on php-pecl-parsekit:;a=tree
There in sources one patch:;a=blob;f=sources;h=8734d4cfe05323e4e2384902887c23f789dcbf0d;hb=HEAD
it was uploaded as fedpkg new-sources or upload action. Is there any 
chance occur link on php-pecl-parsekit-1.3-php-5.4.patch? Or I should I 
have been done it not as upload source but plain git add and commit? 
Will it allow me then build package? Is there any recommendations or 
"common case"?
