[Starlingx-discuss] What's the preferred patch directory structure

I have noticed that we have a number of different patch directory 
layouts with in the stx-* repos.

In some cases there are files/ or <pkg-name>/ directory at the top level 
such as sudo (files) or cluster-resource-agents (<pkg-name>), some have 
files/ and patches/ at the top level such as net-snmp.  Others have 
patches/ and/or files/ under the centos directory. Additional some of 
these directory contain patches with the same name.

I am starting to do some clean-up to reduce some of the duplicate 
patches and want to look at making the directories more consistent also.

Maybe this has been discussed and I lost it in the mix.
Is there a spec / document showing what the correct layout should be?
