We don't merge untested changes directly to 'dev'; we
first include them in them 'pu' and only merge them to
'dev' when they have been verified.

To save time I have corrected your change to
erl_id_trans.xml (instead of asking you to fix it).
References between different applications must
be written like this:

diff --git a/lib/stdlib/doc/src/erl_id_trans.xml
index 7c821d2..54fa1d0 100644
--- a/lib/stdlib/doc/src/erl_id_trans.xml
+++ b/lib/stdlib/doc/src/erl_id_trans.xml

+    <p><seealso marker="erl_parse">erl_parse(3)</seealso>,
+    <seealso marker="compile">compiler:compile(3)</seealso>.</p>

Also, for your next submission, please review our guidelines
for how to write commit messages:


I have broken up your commit into two separate commits
with the following commit messages:

  Linkify applications listed under "See Also"

  Fix minor typos in the documentation

The updated commit will be included in 'pu' later today.
