Je poste ici (pour exemple) les deux exemplaires du fichier
"whoread" (chapitre préface) :

Version 2.4.4 : whoread.sgml

<sect1 id="pre-whoread">
<title>Who would want to read this book</title>
This book is intended for Linux users who want to learn more about the
inner workings of Linux and how the various pieces of the Operating
System fit together. This book will guide you step-by-step in creating
your own custom build Linux system from scratch, using the source code of
the software that we need.
This book is also intended for Linux users who want to get away from the
existing commercial and free distributions that are often too bloated.
Using existing distributions also forces you to use the file system
structure, boot script structure, etc. that they choose to use. With
this book you can create your own structures and methods in exactly the
way you like them (which can be based on the ones this book provides)
Also, if you have security concerns, you don't want to rely on
pre-compiled packages. So instead, you want to compile all programs
from scratch and install them yourself. That could be another reason why
you would want to build a custom made Linux system.
Those are just a few out of many reasons why people want to build their
own Linux system. If you're one of those people, this book is meant for

Version 3.0 : whoread.xml

<sect1 id="pre-whoread">
<title>Who would want to read this book</title>

This book is intended for Linux users who want to setup their own custom
build Linux system. Reasons for wanting to build such a system are
diverse. Perhaps you want to get into more detail as to what
happens behind the scenes. Perhaps you are fed up with distributions
which are often bloated or perhaps you don't want to rely on pre-compiled
binaries due to security concerns. There are many reasons why you may want 
a custom build system, but if you are one of them, this book is meant
for you.

The fruits of building your own system are plentiful, but the labour may
be hard. You have a long way ahead of you but in the end you will be
able to call yourself the proud owner of your own Linux system,
completely tailored after your needs. You dictate the layout of
bootscripts, the file system hierarchy , which programs are installed in
which directory, which versions of software to use and more. Perhaps the
most important reason is that you know exactly what is installed where
why and how.


On voit que le texte a changé, mais que les balises sont restées les mêmes.
Un diff, je pense, suffira à repérer les changements du texte.
