I don't qualify as a docbook wizard yet but I am interested in
learning more about the ports system so if the real wizards are
busy with other things I'll take a first pass at this.
I nabbed it this morning. One of the many valuable lessons I learned
was that new documents should start off with lines ending at around
column 70. This makes patching them during their lifetime easier,
for various reasons related to the translation teams gratuitous line
wrapping changes down the road are a problem. I'd like to address
that now as well as a few other things but it means the best thing
to do would probably be for me to just give you back the whole file
when it's done - a patch might wind up being bigger than the file
if I go through and wrap all the lines at around 70 colunms now.
Is that OK? Once that's done maybe one of the real wizards can
take a look at it to pick up anything I might have missed.
