FWIW, I told HE to go ahead for simple markup fixes and typo and the like.

I would also suggest you to subscribe to the "cvs" keyword of the
"developers-reference" package in the PTS so that you get the commit diff
for easy reviews.

That said, Andreas Barth has been clear with the fact that he doesn't like
direct commits to the repo without prior discussion on the BTS when it
comes to changes in the content itself. So we should probably try to
follow that rule.

(But I find this rule counter-productive when we have knowledgeable
people fixing clearly inaccurate information, like I did in the past for
information that concerns Alioth or like HE has done this morning for
buildd-related information.)
