Speaking of the manual -- I've been meaning to get to an edit but my
teaching load this semester is killing me so I can see that it is just not
going to happen. I'm passing this along to the list here in hopes that
someone will take a look at this (if it hasn't been done already).

It should be a quick thing -- just fixing section numbering in the parmed
part of the manual. Apparently chamber has multiple sub-sections that
ought to be numbered within the chamber section (, but instead
get their own number at the highest section level (14.X). See his note

The ParmEd section (14.2) starts on page 242. The command description

Again, I apologize that I can't do this myself nor even look at git to see
if it was already fixed long ago.

Thank you all,
