But Martin didn't merely do spelling fixes. Martin implemented (and
perhaps unilaterally made for all I know; I don't know where spelling
policy is defined for XEmacs) a policy decision that XEmacs
documentation use American spelling conventions as opposed to British.
I can imagine three rationales for this, and there are probably
others, some better justification than others.
Some people might object; I think that reason should be ChangeLog'ed.
This is a trivial example, but similarly code-irrelevant changes have
occasioned violent flamewars in the past. Defining "relevant" is not
all that easy.
