Yes, there is that— I'd like to see the Lubuntu Manual project take off.
With that in mind, I'm also including lubuntu-users in this conversation.
We have had a long-running need for some people to take a very active role
in helping with the wiki and documentation. Many of us who contribute in
other ways help out with this, but no one is really leading the vision, or

nibbles). We're putting band-aids on when we really need to replace the
That being said, if there is anyone out there interested in helping out
with the team, please get in touch. I don't care what experience you've had
or how long you've been a user or how old you are or whatever. What's
needed is motivation and drive, the ability to communicate effectively in
English (that doesn't mean you have to be a native English speaker) and a
tendency towards organization. All other training and/or technical
assistance will be provided.
If there is 1 person or 1000, all help will be appreciated. If you're even
considering this or wondering if you're the right person for the job,
please get in touch.
I encourage you of all, Ian!
