Could you please detail for me (and perhaps others on the tiff mailing list) what each of the patches does?

Specifically, I'm interested in going from beta015 to beta021

Patches are shell scripts that invoke the patch program in order to apply bug fixes to source files. Each patch file out on sgi.com updates software from one beta to the next. For example, the file v3.3.0.patch-01 converts v3.3beta002 to v3.3beta015 (as it says in the comment at the top of the file). I use shell scripts with individual patches rather than straight diff listings because it makes it easy for folks to do things like:

and so on. The patch file is intended to be applied by going to the top of the source tree and typing:

% sh v3.3.0.patch-01

(or similar).
