I know this may sound silly, but I've recently started learning Eclipse RCP/plugin development and having surfed a lot of documentation on Eclipse, I noticed there were several mistakes and typos on some pages. I know it's not the biggest contribution, but is it possible to report them somewhere (or to fix them myself?)

For instance, how can I modify or patch this documentation ?

http://help.eclipse.org/mars/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.oomph.setup.doc%2Fhtml%2FOverview.html

Or how can I request having the format at the bottom of this page fixed (it's broken and un-aligned on chrome x64 on Linux)

http://help.eclipse.org/mars/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.oomph.setup.doc%2Fhtml%2FOverview.html

Thank you!

The contents of help.eclipse.org are assembled from the documentation in the plug-ins provided by projects at Eclipse.org, which generally means reporting problems through Bugzilla. In this case: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Oomph . I'm not sure where to direct you to actually start making the fixes yourself other than the repositories under http://git.eclipse.org/c/oomph/ , and of course, the Oomph newsgroup: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/eclipse.oomph .

Ok thank you @Nitin

Is it considered okay to submit a bug for a few documentation typos/errors?
