Once before I mentioned that the Server Run-time Configuration chapter
was probably my most visited locations in the manual...
I like very much the split of that into two sections, but I think the
new chapter names are somewhat confusing.
My proposal would be to rename the chapters called
Server Run-time Environment
Server and Operating System Environment
Server Configuration Parameters
The first of these chapters is devoted exclusively to OS issues, some of
which are *not* run-time issues e.g. creating a database cluster, re-
configuring the OS kernel for various resources. Hence, I suggest
replacing the phrase Run-time with something associated with OS.
The second chapter is the server configuration chapter. It doesn't refer
to run-time *client* configuration, for example. Also the whole chapter
refers to "parameters" throughout, yet this is not mentioned in the
title. Also, the preset options section actually refers to settings that
are build-time parameters exposed at run-time, so perhaps the phrase
run-time is misleading.
