Native English speaker here; I'd be happy to edit for grammar.

Great, please go ahead! Something that worked for my reviewers was to 
just email a bunch of "before" -> "after" sentences, e.g.:

* "Developers want code that run fast." -> "Developers want code that 
runs fast."

* "And this is how the SentinelInputRange get into the discussion." -> 
"And this is how the SentinelInputRange gets into the discussion."

I copied and pasted in to libreoffice for editing: 
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/910836/sentinal.odt  or  
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/910836/sentinal.doc


There are 2 comments from me, they are in [] and highlighted in 
yellow. You'll probably want to address them and then delete them.

There were a lot of grammatical mistakes that have now been fixed 
and a couple of sentences have been rearranged. I had planned to 
work as Andrei suggested with "before -> after" but I quickly 
realised the edit file would be longer than the document!

P.S.
I may have accidentally introduced some British English by 
accident, perhaps a native American English speaker will spot 
them.
