[Dev-luatex] Bug#1009196: texlive-binaries: Reproducible content of .fmt files

Hi Luigi, hi all luatex devs,

here at Debian we got a bug report about reproducability of luatex
format dumps. It contains a patch to make the hyphenation exception list
sorted. (I attach the patch)

Could you please take a look whether this is still relevant for the
latest release of luatex.

Thanks

Norbert
