While walking through the files I found the following questions:

Is "a user" usually male, female or "both" in english books?

Should we make everything passive style (not "Install ... by running"
but "... is installed by running")

Also Gerard often used "me" and "we" - are those expected to stay?

PS: Do some of you remember "HE-Man"?
