As this is a fresh re-write of the manual that so far has not got any
releases attached to it, I will create a release for it.  Then, from
time to time,  issue subsequent release, but in between that will still
do more commits and push(es) to the repository.

Do you mean changes to the manual here ?

Problem is I have not figured out overleaf <> github integration ( I
should be able to save directly to git hub) however as it stands I am
downloading all the files as a zip and pdf, then pushing those, which
seems to work nicely.  Just means people can't collaborate as easily.
But if you want to send over a plain text file with changes I can just
copy / paste them in.

Hope this helps
