It reads nicely. The paragraph starting with "The 1.7.35 release is
expected..." needs a tweak as soon as 1.7.35 goes release, of course,
but otherwise it's really neat.
The problem is this: The source of the file is not in HTML but in XML,
Any problem to rework for XML and sending as unified patch against the
latest version of the file from CVS?
