Subject: [PATCH 8/8] Documentation: HID: uhid editing & corrections
Date: Thu, 3 Dec 2020 22:20:22 -0800 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw)
Do basic editing & correction to hid-alps.rst:
- correct a file name (.txt -> .rst)
- use less hyphenation when not needed
- fix grammar & punctuation
- fix article adjectives
- fix typos/spellos
- use HID instead of hid consistently
