LUDOC-11 seems to be a catch-all issue for submitting fixes to minor
problems like typos.  However it sounds like you're saying we can bypass
Jira altogether for such patches.  That would be nice; linking to a
ticket with no useful content doesn't serve any purpose that I can see.

The "Making changes to the Lustre Manual source" article currently
instructs the reader to "file an LUDOC bug for change tracking in Jira"
as the first step.  To avoid discouraging submission of minor fixes,
perhaps a more lightweight process for that case should be covered
first.  In particular, say either that minor fixes should reference
LUDOC-11 in the summary, or just omit the Jira reference altogether,
whichever is appropriate.
