Hey everyone,

Some of you may know me and some of you may not. My name is Rich Johnson, aka 
nixternal. Currently one of my main tasks for Kubuntu 7.04 Feisty is to 
overhaul the Kubuntu documentation that gets installed with Kubuntu.

Some of you may have used the help system provided with KDE and Kubuntu known 
as KHelpCenter. Everything under the Kubuntu section is maintained by the 
Ubuntu Documentation Project of which I am a part of. I have finished the 
gaming section and I am currently working on the Internet and Networking 
sections. The sections that need help are:

 * Adding applications
 * Configuring the desktop
 * Multimedia (Music, Videos and Photo editing)
 * Office (
 * Printing
 * Programming
 * New to Kubuntu (basic concepts, partitioning, and such)
 * Extra odds and ends

What I am looking for is someone who can simply write clear and precise 
instructions in English. If you know DocBook XML and Subversion that is an 
added bonus. You can simply provide some content either in plain text,, KWord, or whatever you want really, as long as I can read it 
and manually convert it to DocBook. If you know any of the sections well that 
I have listed and have a little time within the next couple of weeks, we 
could definitely use the help. You can look at this as a way of contributing 
back to the community and using this on your membership resume, as well as 
getting me to support you as well anyway that I can. I appreciate any and all 
help. If you are interested, you can email me personally instead of flooding 
the help mailing list, or catch me on IRC. I am always in #ubuntu-doc and 
many other channels. If I don't respond to you typing a message to me or 
saying my name in the channel, don't worry, I should be back around shortly.

Thanks everyone!

Rich Johnson
