I don't really care how patches are submitted. I don't usually apply
them directly so it takes just as much time to pull from bitbucket,
decipher a diff posted to the list, or view changes from submitted
file in Meld.

I think it's easier to just have a single screenshot link to the
manual with many more shots. It's less work too :) My thoughts are
that one screenshot would pique interest and leads to viewing them
all, so I'm not sure making them larger in size or putting more on is

Thanks for thinking of me!
