Just some notes on procedure, Dan. When making a new entry in the
ChangeLog in a day that already exists, you only have to add another
listitem. There should only be one mention of each day, with many
entries for that particular day.

You'll only need to set property values for new files. It is a 1-time
thing.

Typically, files that are programs (xterm, tinker-term.sh, etc.)
should be wrapped in <command>xterm</command> tags. Additionally,
though it has no bearing on rendering in the book, official
package names, such as Ncurses, are typically wrapped in
<application>Ncurses</application> tags
