As patches to the existing XML files preferably. :)  There's lots of open
documentation bugs on things that need to be fixed up.

We're still supporting 2.16, too, so the docs on the 2.16 branch need any
changes you submit also (if they're applicable to 2.16).

We've done that already, a couple years ago.  Look at the "" and
"" scripts in your docs directory. :)  (not to mention the xml
directory itself ;)

What's in question is that we currently run the script then cvs
commit the compiled results (the html, text, and pdf).  We're discussing
the possibility of removing the (compiled) html, text, and pdf from cvs,
and letting the website generate them on checkout when there are changes to
the xml.
