i suspected as much, and i wasn't sure how much of an issue that was
based on how many people actually read it. but it's *way* past time
for me to figure out the details of bitbake and OE and this seems like
an easy way to start.
if someone wants to apply patches that i submit (or NAK them and
tell me why), i'l be happy to start attempting to fix the manual, as
that's clearly a good way for me to start learning this stuff.
i've already submitted a small number, so if someone wants to take
charge of applying them in short order so i can pull them back and
keep building on top of them, i'm up for that.
p.s. was there a particular editor that was used to write the
usermanual.xml file? cuz all i'd be doing is "vi"ing the changes.
