Why does it matter???????

Someone has gone to the effort to identify a problem and suggest a solution. 
I'd expect that whomever has been maintaining that code would welcome this 
and incorporate that doc change almost immediately (looks like almost the 
simplest thing to change).

As Michael points out, being a "user" list there are few people on it who 
are developers; you're expecting one of them to install (and learn) git, 
pull the code, _find_ that piece of the doc, created a git patch, and send 
it up to where it might be rejected for a trivial and opaque reason. That is 
not rational. What _is_ rational is for the code maintainer to say "Oh, 
cool, that looks better that what I have, I'll use it." And if that specific 
developer doesn't read this list, I'm willing to bet that someone who does 
can send them the relevant info.

(I've been on both the developer and QA sides of the process. People can 
make it easy or they can make it difficult; I prefer the former.)
