Hi Guys,

I created a local patches sandbox and updated the LFS repository with
a couple of Tidy patches. Seems to work just fine. Thanks for setting
up the access.

In the last day or so, I updated BLFS to Expect-5.43.0. I created a
new patch (simply a rediff) for this update. I used the updated patch
in the BLFS instructions.

I did *not* update the LFS patches repository with this patch, as Matt
said it is LFS policy not to include rediffed patches in the repository
as long as the old one applies, regardless how horribly fuzzed it may
apply.

Though during my testing yesterday of the GCC-3.4.1 versus GCC-3.4.3
patches, I couldn't really see any difference in at least one of the
patches, though new ones were created. Not sure what to think about the
"policy".

Anyway, let me know if you want me to add the Expect patch to the LFS
repo. I named it -2 so it wouldn't conflict with the LFS -1 patch.
