You can send them directly to me.  It's too embarrassing to have all my
speling mistakes sent to the list.

If you do patches can you use "diff -u"?  I like that format.

If you have CVS installed (and some free time) you might try following the
instructions at sf.net (linked off the swish-e home page).  CVS is great.

Then it goes like:

> cvs update

[make some changes]

> cvs diff -u | mail moseley@hank.org

I add the changes.  Repeat.  cvs update brings your source back up to date.
CVS will merge changes in different parts of the document, and report if
there's conflicts.

Thanks Colin!
