Okay, these have become bugreports:
 #794936 - claims it will use "CD-ROM" as cover-term then doesn't
 #795944 - should call a RAID a RAID
 #796662 - rethinking priorities

At this stage what I'd *like* to be able to do is submit half a dozen
different patches for different types of recurring problem - one to
tidy up the <command>s and <package>s, one to fix up the outbreaks of
un-English grammar, one to correct the capitalisation of titles, and
so on.  Unfortunately each of these patches would trample on all the
others, so it would be pointless unless I could be confident that each
one would be applied promptly while I was generating the next one, and
that doesn't look likely.

Plan B is to proceed by dividing the sweep up into one generic
proofreading bugreport per XML file, or perhaps more manageably one
for every dozen or so XML files (which is still verging on being a
Mass Bug Filing).

Has anyone got any useful advice?
