I was just reading up in the MESA Config wizard PNCCONF,
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/config/pncconf.html

and notice that the documentation is missing the following:
Section 3 - Gmoccapy is not described.
Section 6 - doesn't describe the timing for the 5i25 or 6i25 boards.

The same is true in the latest documentation too:

linuxcnc.org/docs/html/config/pncconf.html

Do you feel like you know how to correct this?

At present no, but would be happy to learn if that would help the community.

To Gmoccapy I'd add the following [before 4. External control]:

Gmoccapy
° designed to support a touch screen, but can also be used with a mouse, hardware button and MPG wheels
° modelled off commercial controls.
° includes 3D graphical window
° supports lathe mode for both normal and back tools, plasma cutters, up to 5 axis and non-cartesian machines.
° can be easily localised as labels are in a separate file
° integrates VCPs
° Supports NativeCAM integration

In section 5, can Gmoccapy be added to each sentence which refers to AXIS and Touchy?

In Section 6, with respect to the MESA board timing, I wonder whether we could ask the developers at MESA to suggest updated text. They they have a number of cards which are supported but not listed in this document. I just ordered from them, so maybe as a customer they will be conducive to this?

The documentation is in Asciidoc format here:
github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/tree/master/docs/src

You can edit directly on the web site, but I don't know if you can push (I can, but then I have push access).
I think you would need to click the other button and send a pull request.

asciidoclive.com/ seems to be a live asciidoc previewer which would allow you to check the formatting.

There is already a GMoccapy description in the Gui sub folder. Should I just cut/paste it into the higher level doc?
