Re: docs: how to spell "bitbake", and docbook semantic markup for user input

Rifenbark, Scott M <scott.m.rifenbark@...>

Agreed that BitBake is the correct spelling. I will be sure to make a sweep through our Yocto manuals and make sure that when we are referring to the tool and not indicating the command they say "BitBake".

"Bitbake" or "BitBake" since the doc source seems to bounce back and

I believe it's the latter, at least that's what I've always use.

The man page:
BitBake - simple tool for the execution of tasks

The user manual:
BitBake User Manual

Those seem like the two lines of documentation that are most likely to
be correct :-) So unless Richard or Chris pipe up, I'd go with BitBake.
i thought as much, i'm going with that. not high on any list of
priorities but while i'm perusing the docs, i might as well make notes
of what can change, and submit patches for the more obvious stuff.

are the small changes i've posted here in acceptable format? do
they get ACKed at some point so i can verify they were accepted?
The pieces in poky's documentation directory are part of the yocto-docs
repo which is maintained by Scott (cc'd). Scott is a tech writer rather
than a developer and loves git, er, I mean we might need to help him get
the patches in ;-). Please do send them and we'll figure that bit out
though and will send an acknowledgement when they're merged.
