To the creators of org-mode

at first i have to thank you for the great package and the nice 
documentation.

A few suggestions on the manual
part 5.3.3 Tracking your habits
http://orgmode.org/manual/Tracking-your-habits.html

It says
# You have enabled the habits module by customizing the variable 
org-modules.

I would expect here a link about customizing the variable org-modules, 
and how the setting looks like.


It says
# You must also have state logging for the DONE state enabled, in order 
for historical data to be represented in the consistency graph. If it is 
not enabled it is not an error, but the consistency graphs will be 
largely meaningless.


I would expect here
# In order to get meaningful consistency graphs state logging for state 
"DONE" must be enabled.
(Link to article about enable logging or explain it here.)

kind regards,

Well, customizing variables belongs to the emacs realm; given that, the
documentation is pretty good. One way to improve it could be something
like "You have enabled the habits module by "`M-x customize-variable'
org-modules". The customize buffer is fairly self-explanatory then I
guess. However, while this would make the manual more newcomer friendly,
it would also be less pleasant to read imho. ...

Tracking TODO state changes is in 5.3.2, i.e. just one "[" keypress
away, if you read the emacs info pages?! But a link rarely hurts, I
guess :).

Thanks for your suggestions!
