It's a bit difficult.
One way is to look for a community site that's collecting them.
One site that collects a few is my own,
There are others, e.g.
Another is to get up and running with a minimal set of patches,
then do a google search for each problem you run into thereafter;
you might get lucky and find an appropriate patch.
