What about patches?
I can't remember if there has been a discussion on that topic before but would it not be a good thing to have sticky thread with a list of patches?
Something like this
–--------------- Apply's to release version 1.2 --------------
I would suggest a wiki page that anyone could go in and edit. Then post updates to the page to this thread (or a similar one) so anyone can watch the thread for updates.
Or, people could post updates as a reply to a thread, and then have the original author update the main post with the updates so they are easy to read - but then if the original author goes MIA the info in the thread can lag…
