     This shouldn't really matter as long as experimental
     hyphenation patterns are installed in TeX Live 2008, by

What do the instructions look like for miktex?  Ordinarily, users don't
have to do anything to enable the patterns at .fmt-dumping time.
(La)TeX-level commands to enable them are distribution independent.  So
I'm not sure any particular instructions are needed.

    If item b is not fixed by, say Wednesday, we'll upload the patterns to
    CTAN anyway (as package german-x).  

Good.  When they show up on CTAN, we'll put them into TL.

    1. Update the oberdiek bundle to contain the new package hyphsubst.

I just saw it come through, TL will be updated momentarily.

      german-x-<date> dehypht-x-<date>.tex
      ngerman-x-<date> dehyphn-x-<date>.tex

Is the -latest really desirable for the generic names, instead of just
german-x and ngerman-x?

    3. Do UTF-8 conversion of the experimental patterns for whatever your
    reasons are.  (I'm not yet acquainted with XeTeX and LuaTeX. :/ )

Mojca/Arthur/Jonathan will deal, I'm sure.

    Is that OK for you?

All seems good to me, thanks.
