>From what's been said here before, the doc committers aren't picky
about getting patches. That requires learning whatever doc format they
use, and they understand that that's a pretty hefty burden for a one
or two-paragraph tweak on the documentation. So submitting docs in
English works. Submitting patches works *better*, but not doing so
doesn't consign your suggestions to oblivion.
