I've no idea who I'd like as a mentor, I don't know who anyone is.  :)

In terms of what documentation I'd like ot work on - I'm not entirely
sure what aspects there are really.  I don't want to work on anything
too deep into the system, like setting up obscure network functions or
anything.  Something more 'useful' and and everyday.

Am I right in thinking that you want to make the documentation more
task orientated?  Thats something that I'd liek to get involved in.

In terms of specific types of programme whatever I guess I'm most
interested in media based programs, music, video, jukebox etc.  But by
no means restricted to just that.

I don't really know what needs to be done.
