Hi there,

See nobody replied to ya. Well, nice to have ya aboard. I'm starcraft.man.
Not really an official mentoring process we have, or membership process
really (to my knowledge). If ya pop onto the #ubuntu-doc channel you'll
usually find me or someone else of doc team around. Except when it's quiet I
suppose. I can answer most beginner questions you'll have, but more towards
wiki itself not system-docs (these are docs come with Ubuntu as opposed to
online wiki). For that, I'd suggest ya ask someone else.

As to the page in question, your edit looks fine. No big process, no
discussion pages as ya pointed out. Editing is registered though so
dissuades malicious edits. If ya see a problem or want to improve page, ya
simply edit.

Some beginner reading ya might want to look at for editing wiki page is:

Anyway, pop on IRC during day, someone's bound to be around.
