I would be down with helping out on the handbook, or switching to the topic
based stuff. Right now I am leading a huge push on a total rewrite of the
Kubuntu docs for Lucid. In 2 weeks time, we knocked off about 50% of the
work already. I think we can get some contributors from the Ubuntu side as
well to help out there.

having a ton of fun, though making stuff stable is fun too, but breaking
stuff is more fun. Come on admit it :)
