Pardon intrusion by a non-expert,
but are you just talking about bugs in documentation?
What exactly do you mean by your "CVS commit"?
Commit to what?

I have just been submitting a bugzilla on FC-4
(nothing to do with documentation)
and found the whole process rather daunting.
A bit like a conversation in a foreign language.
I can't believe that this is the best way
to document and resolve bugs.

But this is probably OT here, in which case please ignore me.
