I was going to include some details under 'Patching' stepping people through the process.

I know that it shouldn't be necessary for someone using dwm, but it would mean that there would be fewer posts in the forums about this issue...

Any objections?

Just my two cents, but I would refer them to the patching documentation already provided by the suckless developers[0][1], unless of course you're planning to explain what a patch is...and in that case, I would suggest creating a 'diff' or 'patch' article and placing the content there, since it would apply to much more than just dwm:

Your point is a good one. I was motivated by the fact that the suckless instructions are (deliberately?) opaque. I managed to work it out (after a lot of searching, etc) and figured that others would be in the same boat.

I'm not qualified to write stand alone pages on patching of diffs, so I'll leave that to others...

For what it's Worth, I say GO FOR IT! isn't going to be helpful to anyone. I'm sure people would appreciate you sparing them the difficulty.
