I have raised a PR today for the changes I made to the writing tips in
the uDig Quick Start file.

Jody and Frank, I made a few minor changes to the uDig content as a result.

Here is a link to the pull request in GitHub:

I would appreciate some eyes on it.

Then I can move forward with my proof of concept of applying this to
the trial Quick Starts to get my workflow set up.

Thank you
