Hi!

While reading the book (which I really enjoyed, thanks for all the hard work!) I found the section explaining how to move from single - to multi-users not that clear; I couldn't really deduct how the repository ends up on the server.

For instance, in 3.2.1.0.1 it says

[Pandora-2:/Users/jschimpf/Public] jim% cd FOSSIL/
[Pandora-2:jschimpf/Public/FOSSIL] jim% fossil ui -port 8081 FossilBook.fossil &
[1] 310
[Pandora-2:jschimpf/Public/FOSSIL] jim%
so that suggests the FossilBook.fossil lives in /Users/jschimpf/Public/Fossil

In the example further along in the text, section 3.2.1.0.3 to be precise, the example looks like this:

#!/usr/local/bin/fossil
# Put the book repository on the web
repository: /Users/Shared/FOSSIL/Fossilbook.fossil

To me, as a non-mac user, it's not clear if this is referencing to the same file on the disk. So as a win/linux I need to transfer that fiel myself to the server?

Following this, paragraph 3.4.1 isn't completely clear to me either; given what I assumed above, namely that /Users/jschimpf/Public/FOSSIL is the same folder as /Users/Shared/FOSSIL/, the command from 3.4.1:

[Pandora-2:jschimpf/Public/FOSSIL] fossil clone http://jim:<passwd>@pandora.dyn-o-saur.com:8080/cgi-bin/Book.cgi FossilBook.fossil

would overwrite that file.

All in all, I'm a bit at a loss :)

But again, other than that, I really enjoyed the book!

...and apologies for messing up the layout in the original ticket posting.
