Why patch-configureac and not patch-aa as we normaly use?
Because at some time in the future, someone else will use patch-aa for a completely unrelated file, which makes the CVS history confusing. The chance that patch-configureac is used for anything else than a file is very, very small.

This sounds like a policy change in handling patch files.

Was that somewhere discussed and decided to go this way?
And where is that documented? 11.3.2 in pkgsrc.txt is talking about the
old schema.

Oops, I must have forgotten that this was actually documented.
