You can find patches in the ring-project/daemon/contrib/src/pjproject
directory from the latest source tarball here:

A bit unlikely, they update dependencies quickly, but they're slower
than upstream. Keeping a separate version and updating it paralelly
will prevent breaking the build process of the modified pjproject

Why can't we just keep paralell version for a package? Like 
gnutls @ 3.6.7, gnutls @ 3.6.9 etc?

Don't really know what grafts are yet, so we can indeed skip this
now :)
