I wouldn't be afraid of breaking anything. Our source repositories have
the ability to roll back any changes that were made.

I haven't seen you in the Docs IRC room or at any of the meetings. Have
you been interacting with other members? I wonder what your interests
are and if those interests could translate into work in an existing
guide or a new guide.

I like this idea. Of course you could do this on your own by generating
a guide, new or existing, on your own computer.

If you would like to have a git repository to experiment with I'm sure
that can be arranged. Otherwise you can create and build your own
guides on your computer using Publican.
