Note that the dwm 6.1 was just released. The tarball should match
git at this point in time. Many of the patches apply to 6.0, so you'll
have to tweak them a bit to get them to work. Some of them even say
that they're for 6.1 but really apply to a git version of dwm somewhere
between 6.0 and 6.1.

I just tweaked centeredmaster and push_no_master yesterday and plan to
commit them to the wiki soon. I also happen to know that better-borders
and systray apply cleanly to 6.1 and git right now, so you could start
with those if you're new to hacking dwm.
