Welcome to today's Ubuntu-doc report, covering Feb 16 to Feb 21.

* #ubuntu-doc, problems registering.

    i have a problem with registering on the wiki, i tried to register,
    but the join page claims my email address (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) is

* #ubuntu-doc, help on using the repository

 Liz and Froud had an online, hands-on session on how to use the

 pages in a nice way.

 with a perfect timing, to make me remove a "Where is Plovs?" section
 that I had just typed in this very same issue of the Report.

 Welcome back Alexander: everyone was missing you and asking of your
 news.  And let me introduce you to Mary, Jeff and Liz, who joined the
 team while you were away.
