Yes, doc/src/sgml/*.sgml is the editable format. Phil's writeup is in
protocol.sgml and that is all that would need to be touched. Then submit
the patches (or a replacement file since you are the only one editing
that at the moment) and we'll snarf them up and merge.

The SGML markup is not the prettiest, but don't be intimidated/annoyed
by it. Especially if you are making incremental changes, I would guess
that you will see how to cut and paste using the existing markup tags in
the file. Let us know if you have any trouble with it. We can fix markup
problems after you post changes too...

Only if you want to keep writing :)
