It is great seeing this in the DDP. I have spent a few hours going through
the CVS version and making changes. Unless I knew something was incorrect,
for example openssh now supports ssh2, the meaning of the text was changed
as little as possible:
- removed most uses of 'I'.
- fixed poor grammar and some awkward sentences
- some changes to improve clarity
- removed many unneeded commas
You will notice that the tone is a bit more formal. This was a conscious
decision which I believe is important for a document such as this.
Given the number of changes, someone should review this before committing
it to make sure I haven't introduced any errors. Unfortunately, the diff
ended being bigger than the original so instead of including it here,
it can be found at
I did not check the section on quota.
This document is already full of great information. With some work,
we can really help to improve Debian's reputation as a secure
