I'm all for having a gnome editorial team.  However, I'd like to see it
in a form similar to the UI hitlist, as I think that that is a good
format for this.  In addition, it'd be extremely cool if they didn't
limit their scope to the docbook code, but looked at the text in the
actual applications.  Most developers aren't grammar experts, and can get
very creative when writing error messages/dialogs/labels etc, and many
apps could use a once over.
