Updating a Writer Guide chapter from 6.0 to 6.4 shouldn’t take any longer
than reviewing it properly as it involves much the same work. No commitment
needed beyond one chapter at a time.
But it’s up to you, and reviewing is certainly needed and very welcome.
Weren’t you reviewing Peter’s updates to the Draw Guide? Have you caught

If it’s ok with everyone although I am free at present I would like to
review the chapters as they’re updated. Although I’ve been furloughed in
regular job, I didn’t want to say I’d commit to updating anything in case
my situation changes in the coming couple of weeks.

For people working on this update:
1) Remember to check the Release Notes for v6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4.
2) Many minor changes are not given in the release notes, so be sure to
verify what’s written. If it doesn’t correspond to what you see, it
be an error in the v6.0 book or it might be a change in the software.
Either way, what’s written needs to be changed.
3) Be especially wary of features that are no longer there or methods
no longer work, and thus need to be removed from the book.
4) Some chapters may still have instructions that were originally
workarounds for missing features, but the features are now there so the
workarounds are no longer needed (although they may work perfectly
I’ll try to find time to make a list of the ones I remember.
5) Related to 4), some examples in some chapters are now a bit silly
do something the hard way if an easy way now exists?) and should be
replaced by better examples or removed.
6) Don’t believe much of what’s in Ch2 of the Contributors Guide. I’m
updating it, slowly.
I’m sure there are others; I’ll post again when I think of them.
