Subject: RE: patch for new john format: phpass (also works for 	phpBBv3)

Thank you.  I will use that approach.  This time I made a *-2.diff based upon 'clean' base, and made a *-2upd.diff which works if the *-1.diff had been applied.   In the future, I will simply do -REVS.diff based upon a 'clean' -0 state.

Generally speaking, OSS patches are produced against the base
[original] source with no prior assumptions unless released as a
bisectable series:

PATCH 0/3: explanation
PATCH 1/3: standalone changes
PATCH 2/3: changes dependent on 1/3
PATCH 3/3: changes dependent on 2/3

So, assuming -1 hasn't been applied is a more accepted approach.
