Gnome Documentation Style Guide

The Gnome Documentation Style Guide includes this statement:

"Avoid sexist language
"Pronoun constructions such as his/her or s/he do not exist. There is no
need to identify gender in your instructions."


Interestingly enough, this document acknowledges that:

"Many of these guidelines are only applicable to English-language usage,
see the American Heritage Dictionary  and the Chicago Manual of Style."

The Gnome document appears to be the sort of thing that might provide a
useful baseline for evolving a Debian Style Guide.
