had much to contribute. When I saw this document, I opened up the .texi
and just went through it with an eye for English grammar. Perhaps the
document is in too early a stage for that but I'm emailing my modified
version of gns.texi anyway. If it's useful, great...if not I'm always
available if such editing is necessary later.
Thanks for your contributions! I have recieved Kim's version and have migrated the changes into my main document. I will go through your version too and merge the changes and send out an updated version. There is no doubt that this is a rather bad way of keeping an updated version of the document at all times so it problably would be nice to have some kind of version control system. However, I do not know how to set up something like that and where to do it, so I might need some help with this. If there is being put up something like this, we would problably need some routines about committing and somewhere to discuss changes.
I am currently also working on improving the section on gNewSense and Lemote with some general information about the project and company.
Thanks for your interest!

login, I've found it has pretty slick revision control, a full screen
editing mode, and is now my preferred place to draft essays and blog posts.
