If there's some way to reach out to the contributors that were having problems 
with documentation, I think it would be good to give them a call to contribute 
to documentation.  Only new (or semi-new) contributors can make good 
documentation that's useful for brand new people.  The rest of us either know 
or have forgotten too much about what it's like to be new.  I would highly 
encourage them to invest some of their Ubuntu contribution time in improving 
the documentation for new people.
