The "CHANGES" file inside the tarball would tell (since the update to it
is part of the patch).  I've gotten very little feedback from packagers(*)
regarding the post-release patches and updates; each release starting with
2.8.2 in 1999 has had post-release patches.  _All_ of the interaction I
recall regarding those patches has been my pointing out that they exist.

The individual tarballs (including release updates) are of course on

this narrows it down slightly (since you're referring to rpms).

(*) roughly speaking, less than a quarter of the packagers for the various
    programs that I maintain communicate directly with me.
