Hi Giorgos,

I think your post was meant to be addressed to me as I wrote the above

I'd be happy to review the patch that Gabor has written & if necessary
add or subtract from it.

It will take me a bit of time to get up to speed with the mark-up &
review/grok the updating docs in the round. ATM, they certainly fall
short of including anything about updating a local copy of the docs.

I'll sign up for docs@ & then my impertinent/stupid questions about
the docs can be answered there....hopefully ;)
