There is a page on "Cross Referencing Other Documentation" here :
I haven't tested any of this, mind.

I would like to move the section "To Format a Floppy Diskette" in "Using
Removable Media" from the Nautilus guide
(".../gnome-user-docs/gnome2-user-guide/gosnautilus.xml", "F1" in
Nautilus) to the GFloppy manual. The details in the Nautilus guide are
missing from the GFloppy manual and I believe them to be superfluous in
the Nautilus Docs, I would like to provide just a link to the GFloppy

Which brings up the links between documentation question : do they work,
are they a good idea or should they be avoided ?

Does anyone object to moving this documentation, is this a bad idea ?
Could I just do the mods, file a bug/patch and play it from there ?

Love, Karderio
