I deliberately used the word 'update' rather than the word 'patch'
because I am not conversant with the code necessary to convert plain
text into a patch.  I am most comfortable using simple text editors or
Open Office type word processors.

A quick search brought up only 

That one was not well constructed, but I considered it to be a valid
suggestion at the time.

Bug 684709 includes some discussion from both myself and David T about
our frustration with the process.  I think the documentation topic of
that bug report has been committed, by the way, unless it has not yet
made it through all the necessary steps.
Also, I think the wiki info about how to submit documentation
suggestions was clarified after Bug 684709 was submitted.

I thought that I had submitted two or three more documentation requests
after that which did not appear in my search.  If I find them, I will
let you know.
