[PATCH] doc: A few minor copy edits.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


- (glossary) the quotes around the Wikipedia URL prevented its
  linkification in frontends that support it; remove them

- (manual) newer version (SHA-1) == following, older == preceding, not
  the other way around

- trivial typo and wording fixes
