Since my most significant contribution has probably been 'nit-nurse',
I'd be grateful for a detailed list of nitlets that you noted in reading,
or even what you vaguely remember being wrong

- I've read it enough times for my eyes to glaze over ;-)

As John has noted, we have been adding to the code (for example the Pareto distribution as requested)
but the documentation hasn't quite kept up.

When we've got a list of minor nits to squash, we will have a fuller update. (The production of the pdf from Quickbook is harder
than the html - indeed the whole process isn't as smooth as one would like, and we'd like the graphs to be in SVG rather than jpegs,
and to use MathML for equations etc).

We'd also like to add more examples - user contributions will be most welcome.
