Yes, the file is pretty much the same, i've read it and just corrected some. 
I'm not about to rewrite your documentation, just to point out what should be 
changed of my point of view. Shall just be another opinion, i'm aware of you 
checking back what i actually wrote.

I thought you will use diff or similar to review what i actually changed.

Cervisia is also fine to see which files have been updated. Don't expect too 
much, i'm just reviewing, and the documentation of pacman was quite fine so 

Kind regards,
