[Todd] What is the recommended policy regarding patching zookeeper
locally? As an external user, should I patch and compile in the trunk or
in the branch (branch-3.2)?
I've looked at :

And both of these seem well thought out but aimed at commiters commiting
to the trunk.

In your context (want 3.2 features) you probably want to build based on the 3.2 tag, that way you are working off a known quantity. I'd suggest strongly that as part of your build you document the source base and which patches/changes you have applied. Having this information will be critical for you (or someone using your build) in case bugs have to be filed, or further changes/patches have to be applied, etc...
