[BOOK] syntax weird

From: Marcel Molina Jr. <marcel_at_vernix.org>

Chapter 3, in the section 'Merging Conflicts by Hand', second sentence of the
second paragraph:

        "Let's say that, due to a miscommunication between you and your
        collaborator, Sally, both edit the file _sandwich.txt_ at the
        same time."

Stripping out the qualifiers gives you this:

        "Due to a miscommunication between you and your collaborator
        both edit the file _sandwich.txt_ at the same time."

Because of certain rules, the names of which I do not know, that sentence is
grammatically incorrect.

The sentence could be "fixed" in any number of ways, which I leave up to you.
One that came to my mind was the following:

        "Let's say that you and your collaborator Sally, due to a
        miscommunication, both edit the file _sandwich.txt_ at the same time."

Once again, thank you very much for writing the book and making it
available. I am going through for the second time and am finding most
all my questions answered. I am also most impressed by the immediacy
with which the core team manages to answer questions (both elemental and
complex) on the dev and users list. I don't know how you all manage to
do anything other than read and write email. Well done. Good karma will
more than likely be visiting you with frequency.
