What you say makes sense... I guess I will have to 
figure out the mysteries of xdoc and "patches" and
CVS now - unless there is a simple guide to this
on the Wiki ?  ;-)

BUT I still think there is a case for people who spot
mistakes and want to see things changed but are too
busy to go the route above -at least if they make a quick
note in the Wiki its better than none; otherwise one must
plow through the old archives and read each mail trying to
spot where people have found mistakes!  I'm one of those
people that every now and then will feel obliged to
"fix" something and so would pick out things from this page
"to do".

The thing is, there isn't a doc team as such. It is just us lot. So, I

would say, start on the wiki by all means, but if you want to see the 
official docs improve, send in patches to the xdoc files (it is pretty

easy once you've got the hang of it). Then we can commit those patches

(assuming they're any good) into CVS, and hey presto! Send enough good

patches, we'll get sufficiently irritated ;-) and will give you commit

rights on the repository - you'll then be able to just update it

That is a proposal. It could be taken a lot further.

Don't relate name of this page to a specific version. It should be 
rolling. When a change request has been handled and is in CVS, it is 
removed from this page. So: DocumentationChangeRequests, I would

Isn't there a tutorials page already? Better to improve that than to
another page.
