Where should I add it to have it in all my documents?

I guess that even in that case it would be restricted to the
distribution I’m using. (I mean, I had to add them again if I use
another computer.)

For me, adding the command to the document (or the distribution) would
be easier. But this isn’t about my documents or myself.

Sorry for my delayed reply, but I don’t have much time to devote it to
these issues (they are pure hobby for me).

I also had to check the reference for the alternate hyphenation (I
didn’t had the book myself and I wasn’t near to a library where I could
lend it).

In my documents, I have been using \registerhyphenationpattern for more
than three years (to enable a hyphenation with a line starting with "no"
at the beginning of the line).

Sorry for my inaccuracy, I know that \registerhyphenationexception is a
different command from \registerhyphenationpattern.

I only wanted to discuss the issue before providing the patch with the
patterns (at least) at GitHub.

To avoid misunderstandings, I have just edited the title of the issue at
GitHub (https://github.com/hyphenation/tex-hyphen/issues/34).

With “pattern set” I meant an optional pattern set that allows the
hyphenation of all pair of consonants that don’t start a word (γ-μ, but
not γ-ν) which are blocked in the main hyphenation pattern set.

I don‘t know how, but this optional set has to be loaded with the main
hyphenation patterns.

I don’t know how to add those patterns as alternate ones. But I’m going
to provide the patch with the needed hyphenations.

Many thanks for your help,
