Last change on this file since 323 was 323, checked in by bcornec, 15 years ago

Initial import of the documentation in SGML format.
Since the original SGML file and LyX files have not been published,
thus not preserved, I'll restart from scratch by importing the HTML
doc converted into SGML/DocBook.
Then real work begins ;-)

34<para>This HOWTO is incomplete but accurate to the best of my
35knowledge. Please provide suggestions and recommendations for
36improving this document in a separate e-mail to the mailing list.
37Join the mailing list at
38<ulink url="http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/mondo-devel">http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/mondo-devel</ulink>;
39e-mail the list at
40<ulink url="mailto:mondo-devel@lists.sourceforge.net">mondo-devel@lists.sourceforge.net</ulink>;
41tell us what is wrong and how it should be fixed. Include the
42section title and recommended changes. Whenever possible, include
43the exact, spell-checked, grammar-checked text that you think would
44improve the document.</para>

48<para>Please note that we do our best to help everyone but it is
49difficult for us to help you if you do not attach a log file to
50your e-mail. Let me say that again - attach your log file to your
51e-mail! Thank you. Without it, we can only wave our hands and say,
52"Well, it could be this or it could be that," and we can't offer
53any tangible help because you aren't either. That's what the log
54file is for. It is located at /var/log/mondo-archive.log; please
55use gzip to compress it before attaching it, or it will be too big
56for the mailing list.</para>
57<para>Re: punctuation and spelling</para>
58<para>I was born and raised in England. I spent three years in the
59USA, where I picked up some of the associated spelling, etc. Much
60of Mondo's development took place in the US; so, rather than
61confuse matters, I am keeping all source code and documentation in
62US English. All criticisms should be made with that in mind.</para>
63<para>When I was at school, the apostrophe would be present when
64pluralizing an acronym - e.g. CD's, ISO's - but nowadays that is
65considered old hat and even incorrect by some, which came as a
66shock to me when I found out. It surprises me how quickly grammar,
67spelling and punctuation have evolved even during my brief
68liefetime. I am afraid I am still in the habit of writing CD's
69instead of CDs. If you would like to draw my attention to
70technical, grammatical or typographical errors, please feel free
71but remember to couch your e-mail in language which shows you are
72doing this out of a spirit of compassion for the poor sods who have
73to read the documentation, not out of a spirit of pedantry.
