I was referring to the difference between glibc-20040116 and 20040128.
I'm wondering if it's needed to grab the latter as opposed to just
patching up _if_ LFS firmly sticks with the older.

And to Ryan, I'm wondering if there would be any technical reason to
_not_ use 20040128 for LFS? If LFs used that one, the decision to patch
up would be moot.


You [should] not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it
will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it
would do and the harm it would cause if improperly administered
