Fair enough, and I certainly appreciate all the work you do on the docs.
I've tried to submit bug reports when I noticed anything strange in the
past. Maybe now that I'm more or less up to speed I can find time to
contribute something more.

BTW, it was actually one of your posts from a few years ago that lead me to
the updated docs. [ 1 ]

You mentioned the documentation for a GetChildren method, when I looked at
the docs for TComponent. I didn't see a GetChildren method listed for
TComponent, so I went back to google. The updated docs have a whole page
about it.

Given all the work you've done since Feb 2, I would even say that the
updated version does a better job of describing 2.6.2 than the 2.6.2 docs.
