Thanks Geoff, it is now in CVS for both HEAD and 2.0.3

Now it will get a wider audience and can easily be modified.
Unfortunately, the public website version must await the next
irregular manual upload (come on Forrest, get running).

Would you provide a few dot points. We can patch
xdocs/plan/issues-doc.xml to indicate the need.
There is one document that helps a little

Books are well and good, but we still need core
documentation such as yours.

Via Bugzilla is the preferred way, because it is easier for
committers to process. It also keeps track of the patch in case
all committers are busy and do not get around to it for a while.
It also ensures that committers do not waste time, by more than
one of us tweaking the same patch ready for commit.

That said, anyway that you send it is fine.

Provide more patches anytime you feel the need. Be sure to
keep your CVS working copy up-to-date or monitor

I noticed that your document had many long lines, and some of the
paragraphs were all one line. This makes it rather difficult to
clearly see cvs diffs in the future. Also, source code sections
are not properly wrapped. So i tidied the document a bit.
