Hi Mark,

Glad to hear you want to get involved with the project and team. See the end
of this email for important links you'll probably find to be what your
looking for. First is the wiki guide detailing how to edit pages, the second
is the doc team home. See the wiki section in particular  and you'll
probably want to read the rest as well. I think that's what you were looking

If you want some live help, we have an IRC channel in #ubuntu-doc on
Freenode server (see link 3 for how to connect). Sometimes channel is quiet,
ya can drop into #ubuntu-beginners some doc members like me primarily hang
out there. I think there's also #kde-docs, that's more kde specific though.

Hope that helps, sorry nobody replied to you before. All the best.
