Well, as you have seen in Justin's mail, *I* also need English
lessons. Moreover, the mistakes he corrected in my revised version are
frequent mistakes of mine (most of them are probably turning a big
"this guy is French" sign over my head).

What's good in this process is that it works flawlessly: I do the
general revision and propose enhancements to style and wording, then
Justin picks up with this and polishes everything to make it sound
like Real English, with the extra addition of very clever comments
about the language.

Then I pick all suggestions he does and that usually becomes the more
or less final version..:-)

I can include this in the review patch. That only requires a small
change to debian/config and moving the text to a newly added
