Very good ideas. These are the bits-and-bobs I was talking about when I sent 
the call for help.

Best way to get updates from programmers is if they just send email to the 
list. I do believe enrico is on this. He will ask the devs to bring GUI 
changes and things that impact the docs to the attention of the list via 
email. They don't need to do the screen capts etc.

These kind of changes just go with the documentation territory. Please feel 
free to create new capts if you see fit.
Info on how to do screencapts can be found at
