Yes.  The script does:

sed '/part4/,/part>/d' index.xml > index2.xml

xsltproc --xinclude stylesheets/patcheslist.xsl index2.xml > \

and then

bash copy-lfs-patches.sh

patcheslist.xsl looks for <ulink>s that contains '.patch' and &patches-root; and 
sets up to copy those patches from the patches repository on quantum to 


The script runs at 0415 MST every day.  It will also send a message to lfs-book 
if it can't find a patch specified in the book.  For a manual render, go to 
quantum where the script render-lfs-book-dev.sh needs to be run via sudo.
