Yes, thank you very much. :-) I just had no time (or was too lazy?) to apply them. > there are three questions that i have: > > 1) as i did not follow gimp documentation project at all, i am not > sure if it is the right time to create these patches, It's always the right time. ;-) > i have no > idea whether there is an undergoing work elsewhere on preparing > documentation for 2.8 release so my patches might not apply > cleanly after these would be pushed into the main repo or maybe > it's somewhere else already fixed. > > 2) should i also make patches that "move" documentation toward 2.8 > release, like changes in shortcuts etc? No, not necessary.

I'm not sure, too. It seems that most documentors prefer capitalization...

So you have an account for git.gnome.org? Then I think it's ok if you commit (push) your patches. If you are not sure about your changes, use bugzilla (best way is to create patches with "git format-patch", but simple patches are also fine). > also, i have one issue with understanding of documentation, the > section about sample points. i was not able to make sample points > work neither in gimp 2.6 nor 2.7 though i think i did it right > (ctrl+click on ruler). anyone knows whether the documentation is > correct and the feature does not work in gimp or there is some > other way to make it work? It works: Ctrl-click on a ruler, hold the mouse button pressed, and move the pointer to the image. Thank for your help, bye, Ulf -- Kein größeres Verbrechen als Gleichgültigkeit.
