I don't know what you are speaking on. "shortcut" is not used in the ssh
man pages (with one exception about proxy jumps, which do not matter for
Tramp). So there's nothing to say about.

Are you kidding? You know, that "/" is not a valid Tramp name.

You lost me, sorry. The Tramp manual is not about ssh commands; and it
tries to avoid underlying command details (not only for ssh). It would
be all too much. 

For example, "ssh host" can behave different, depending on your
.ssh/config. Tramp won't explain all these details, this is left to the
ssh manuals.

So I don't see what needs to be changed. Pls show me *errors* in the
Tramp manual, and I will fix. That's it.

Best regards, Michael.
