sorry, I meant the command 'yes "" | make pending patches', both times.
Could you correct it?

The error occured because I had to alter the install-instructions 
according to the new release (1.2.2 -> 1.2.3). I committed the changes 
to the iptables-exp.xml, but forgot to update the actual iptables-inst.xml.

Sorry, won't happen again!	;-)

Hmm, I did it like it was purposely, but if that's unwanted, I will do 
better for the future.

Hmm, I would like to ask for suggestions how to transfer the rest of the 
iptables-hint into BLFS.
Is there already any outline how the Book could incorporate this topic, 
the current structure doesn't mention it?

Have a nice day,

response-mail comes from me</joke>.	;-)
