Subject: [9front] [FQA] some fixes
Date: Mon, 17 Jan 2022 15:13:20 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <YeXN4N2AJEGQOQWh@bsdforall.org> (raw)

Hello.
This patch changes following pages:
page 59, #9front -> #cat-v 
page 126, monospaces refernces to files and ndb configuration
page 160, mention 10/10 is not possible on 9front with mail-tester.com because of no dkim (yet?)
page 201, hg is gone.
page 220, python is gone.

i've also noticed following issues, but not sure about them:
page 83, t430s lacks info
page 184, "read u9fs(4)" 
- since we don't have u9fs man page on 9front anymore, this is misleading.
maybe a link to u9fs man page?


this is first time i'm writing documents using troff, so please
mention if there are errors.
Thanks!
