Debian 5.0 (lenny) release notes CfH: Patches needed!
there are some bugs open against the release notes to which
nobody wrote a patch so far. This is your opportunity to help
Debian and become famous!
Please: If you think, you have a good understanding of one or
more of the following issues and can write some sentences in
English about the issue, do so! The English does not need to be
perfect - there are other people who can correct grammatical or
spelling errors. Don't be afraid :~)
Checkout the release notes with subversion:
$ svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/ddp/manuals/branches/release-notes/lenny
Find the English original *.dbk files in the "en" directory. The
release notes are written in DocBook XML, but if you are not
familiar with that format, just send your patch as pure
UTF-8/ASCII text. To check out only the English DocBook files run:
$ svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/ddp/manuals/branches/release-notes/lenny/en
which should be much faster.
If you wrote sth. just send the text to the respective bug,
