In fact, can we have something like this in the author FAQ please?
Q: "What happens if I spot a mistake in my article sometime after
A: It depends upon the type of "mistake" noted. Because of the way the
Linux Gazette operates its mirror service (and we do have a lot of
mirrors) it's not possible to ensure that any mirror services will
receive the changes. At best, you can hope that the correction happens
"at source" on linuxgazette.net . Be aware though that in the majority
of cases, any follow-up information with regards to your article will
likely appear in the next issue of LG.
Mangle as you see fit. I realise there's already a note about forking
in the FAQ, but the above has been something we've been seeing a lot of
recently, and I just thought having it in a location respective authors
are meant to read would be a good idea. :)
