$ cd environment should probably be $ cd srv_article/environment. Other than that, this article looks good to me.

This article has been scheduled for publication on 16 June at 08:00 UTC.

Thank you, Tomáš

Hi guys, there is a comment that one of the sentences is not very clear and i agree that it could be explained more thoroughly. Would it be possible for me to update one sentence in the article?

Also there is a pending comment that i would like to approve but either i do not have permissions or i can not find a button to do so. For clarity, i would like to change the sentence "That means, first contact the server with the lowest priority. If the server does not respond, try to contact the next server with either the same or lower priority." to "That means, first contact the server with the highest priority (lowest priority field value). If the server does not respond, try to contact the next server with either the same or lower priority (higher priority field value)."

I've made the change. If there is anything more that needs changed, just let us know with a comment here.
