Welcome! There's quite a lot of work going into the wiki at the moment,
so you might be interested in participating in that. In particular, the
Beginners' Team are making quite a few changes [1].

If you'd like some experience fixing documentation bugs, we have a few
of those that you might like to have a look at too. Just let us know
what you'd prefer to work on and we'll help you to get started.
