I found a typo in one of the -example help files.

All sources I studied this far tell me to report it at connect.microsoft.com (PowerShell section)

This is my first "contribution" to the community! I want to do it correctly.

Would I submit it as a "bug" or "feedback"?

thanks

All the help files are open source now! GItHub.com/powershell is the starting point. You can either file an issue, or just fork the repo, fix the problem, and submit a pull request

ok...so looking here https://github.com/powershell?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=

I don't see any repo hit for "help" that deals with help files per se in PowerShell.

Do I create new Repository (I'm new to GitHub)?

There are separate sub folders for documentation. And no, you definitely don't create a new repository :). It might be easier to find what you're after and just file an issue against it, or use the teams UserVoice page. But it's worth your time to read up on GitHub and how to use Git. It's a big part of powershell now.

That's cool. reading the help about_activedirectory_filter there are multiple references to email as an attribute in AD.

Get-ADUser -Filter 'Email -like "*" -and SurName -eq "smith"'
