I have no idea whether is this included in SVN, but probably not. I
think there is no some kind of announcement list for included patches
(except -dev), so you can only check that manually.  Try to apply
patch by yourself and if you get message that this is already applied
("assume reverse -R), it is ok. if you get the message that the patch
could no be applied because of "not found" etc errors, you will have
to apply it manually (open the patch, open the file which should be
patched, make a copy of it, check for differences and apply them by
yourself). after that, you can create a patch by yourself by doing:

diff -Naur new_file_or_dir old_file_or_dir > your_patch

and add it to trac for other people.
