Yes, please do.  Carl can help you get started as a Frog; we
desperately need more people writing patches for such problems.

Perfect, where do I begin? I already know exactly what to change and

Please look at the Contributor's Guide in the docs. From the main doc page choose Developer's Resources, then you'll see the Contributor's Guide.

The best way to get started (although it's not the easiest) is to install git and pull a copy of the repository from Savannah. Then you can make the changes and create a patch. The Contributor's Guide describes how to do it.

I've gotten this far, and everything is fine.

If I understand this correctly, you're proposing to make changes to the docs, rather than the code. Is that right? If so, you should submit your
patch to Trevor Daniels, rather than to me.
Correct, will do.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
I don't know where to find the files that I would use to make the change. The Producing a patch and Documentation policy didn't help much in this regard. Is there somewhere that explains what the files are? I have the Documentation, and I imagine that what I need is somewhere in the user folder, but I'd hoped for a structure that would have the learning manual and then the various sections of the learning manual, so I can make the change. Regardless of how it's organized, I just don't see where to find section 2.3.5 of the Learning Manual. Help?

The source code of the LM is all in the
Documentation/user directory.  The file names are
roughly the same as the chapter or section names in
the manual, so you'll find 2.3.5 in tutorial.itely.

Attached is my attempt to make a .diff. It's my first time, so if I didn't do it right, let me know. It's a learning process for me. All I did was copy/paste the polyphony instructions from the Notation Reference, and updated the examples. I really do think it's very well written, and explains everything so well as it goes along, that I couldn't have done a better job trying to re-write it.

If this is okay, I'll take a look at the fundamental and see if I can help there.
