Hi all,

I almost wrote a very similar email myself yesterday. As some of you know I am already in the docs-writer group and attend the docs meetings (at least when I remember to ;)) though my actual contributions to the guides/release notes/beats have fairly minimal. I do however work heavily with publican in $DAY_JOB and although I know the Fedora docs publishing process is different to the one I am used to using (in terms of the technical mechanism) this is a task I feel I could assist with for guides and/or languages where we do not have users who are as comfortable with the task at hand. I am in an out of bugzilla all day during the week, again mainly for $DAY_JOB, and am in the process of getting used to git...
