Sorry I haven't gotten to this yet.

I think our standard is two spaces after a period.
Perhaps that's overly pedantic.

I think I would write "system properties" -- i.e., don't capitalize
"System".  Or if you intended to refer to java.lang.System, then I'd
write @code{System}.

There are other cases like this.

Typo: "Whether" is missing an `h'.  There are a couple of these.

Other than these things this patch is fine.  Thanks a lot for doing
this; writing documentation seems to be everybody's least favorite
activity.
