[hackers] [dwm][PATCH] patch maintenance best practice?

Hi all:

I have submitted some patches for st and dwm, which have been added to
the corresponding patches sections in the suckless.org site. I would
like to do some modifications to one of these patches, and was wondering
what is the best practice.

Should I just push a new version of a patch to
git.suckless.org/sites/dwm.suckless.org/patches/patch-name directory.

What if there is bug in the previous patch? Is it a good practice to
remove the old patch file and add a corrected one?

And what if I want to slightly change what the patch does, should I
create a new one, or can I just document in the difference from one
version to the other in the index.md file.

Forgive me if this is documented, I could not find where. In that case
pointing to the documentation is a fair enough answer for me.

Thank you.
