I have difficulties applying your patch on my local copy.

When doing a 'patch -u --dry-run < diffs' on my machine (Cygwin), I
receive multiple warnings like this:

can't find file to patch at input line 129
Perhaps you should have used the -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|Index: src/documentation/library/xslt/howto2document.xsl
|RCS file:
|retrieving revision 1.1
|diff -u -r1.1 howto2document.xsl
|--- src/documentation/library/xslt/howto2document.xsl  19 May 2002

|+++ src/documentation/library/xslt/howto2document.xsl  23 May 2002
20:20:12 -0000
File to patch: <prompt>

I fill in the prompt as requested, and patch continues, uptil however:

patch: **** malformed patch at line 312:

What's the purpose of "howto-bugzilla-patch copy.xml" in

Warning: I'm not too comfortable yet with diff and patch, so this could
also be my problem. But I'm trying really hard ;-)

Happy planting!
