Dan, I would appreciate if you just take a pause for a moment when you post things like this. I am sure you are well-meaning but the only thing counterproductive here is calling reasonable edits "convoluted ramblings". It doesn't help anyone to exaggerate and to post unconstructive criticism. That part of your message could simply have been left out. Tell me where you disagree technically, or tell me specifically if you think something is wordy, that's constructive. There's a risk that calling someone's work a "load of convoluted ramblings" is going to be interpreted by some people as "your input here is not welcome, go away." I do not
interpret it that way, but I'm concerned about maintaining a friendly atmosphere and community here. So while I'm not personally offended, I can say with certainty that anyone can look at the edit history and see that your characterization is baseless. You don't have to agree with my edit, but it wasn't ramblings, period. It was just a mention of something you didn't want included.
On a productive note, I made a new edit, consolidated some of the things, and removed some actual rambling (but it was rambling that was there from before, not from me). I think you'll be pleased with the current update.
Regarding the focus of the manual, I'm fine with it being on KXStudio the distro, but I do suggest we give deference to falkTX on that somewhat. He has generally expressed interest in emphasizing the repositories and de-emphasizing the distro.
So just again to clarify: no offense taken, and I intend no offense either, but please try to stick to constructive
criticism. It's perfectly fine to disagree about things and express your disagreement.
