Some more ideas:

When you sign up to the doc team through LP, the first thing you’ll do
is check the  project you want out of bazaar
You send stuff by checking it in
The continuous build system will let you see your contributions
formatted as it will be printed in pdf/html etc.
And, if your contribution contains code it is kept in separate source
code files and the build system will include the extracts you want
directly into the formatted final document (and it’ll syntax highlight
them along the way).

I will be @ UDS for the meeting
