I'm sure it would be easy to integrate these pages into the Contribute
doc. Just let me know if I need to cover any extra ground if you decide
to nuke the "How you can help" page. You can still find the current
draft of the Contribute Doc at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ContributeToUbuntu

I don't know about integrating feedback through Yelp, as that will leave
Khelpcenter out of the loop, so instead I've been in touch with Mikko,
the Summer of Code student who is doing the Wiki2DocBook project to hear
if he could add a function to add links to the bottom of exported pages.
I think he's willing to implement this, though he will require some
reminding. He's idling from time to time on #ubuntu-doc, so if you see
him, give him a reminder to have a look at this. :-)
