You don't have to download the whole snapshot.  Patch files are
available at the same place, and patching instructions are in
<wine>/README.  I read the wine-cvs mailing list and fetch the
individual patch files through a proxy using wget -i.

I use this to extract the url's from the wine-cvs mail folder:

grep Patch: /gp/pine/wine-cvs|sed 's/Patch:\ //g' > ~/wgets
mv /gp/pine/wine-cvs ~/cvslog/$(date -u -Iseconds)

You might have to adjust the filenames.  Mine are a bit odd.

and this to render the sgml into text:

sed  -e 's/&lt;/</g' -e 's/&gt;/>/g' -e 's/&amp;/\&/g'

These patches apply with a -p 4.  They seem to be in order by filename,
as they seem always to apply in the right order when I cat them together
before piping them to patch.  Man patch is not such a bad man page.
