Re: Dash search data and Chapter 2


Ok...thanks for this feedback (and the schedule). I was unaware that we
were targeting the release of this manual to coincide with the release of
the software...a good thing for sure.

I just finished editing the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, and in reviewing some
of the summaries and article links, there still doesn't seem to be a solid
agreement as to what controls will be available to the user in this regard,
so I'm not sure what is best to do for the accuracy of this manual in this
regard....maybe wait until 13.04 and nail it at that time?
