questions about manual

From:

I started looking at shoes (again, after a 3 year hiatus) a few days ago 
and got excited about it, and the amount of work that's gone into 
maintaining and stabilizing it.

Since I'm just getting started using Shoes I've spent a lot of time with 
the manual, both the manual itself, and the code behind it.

I'm having trouble with some of "the tricky bits".

On the Rules page, in the section on Block Redirection, just above the 
list of rules, there's some code for class Messenger and under it it says:
"As you can imagine, the app object changes self to the App object"

Is this accurate? Or, is it the app method that changed self to the App 
object? It's been a while since I mucked about with ruby so, between that,
and the tricky stuff being done regarding block redirection in shoes, I'm 
just not sure if I'm understanding this.

If I'm right, and the text should read "the app object changes...", I can 
make the change to my fork and push to the repo... I might even be able to
find a person to change the Japanese file, but I'm not too confident of 
that.



sincerely,
hawley

Hi,

you're right that should definitely read app method not app object. Good 
catch, thank you! If you fire up a pull request I should be able to 
merge it soon :-)

Cheers,
Tobi

Cool! :)

Thanks. Feel free send your pull request.
We can review it on github.

Wow, fantastic!
But if you can't, don't worry, I'm Japanese. :-D
