Thanks, let us know if anything needs fixing.

I suspect that your docbook knowledge is better than you think,
particularly since understanding how the PDF generation process itself
involves a certain amount of docbook understanding... but I don't
think that this needs to stand in the way of your joining the team,
because it only needs you to use the validation scripts
("scripts/") to make sure that everything is working and
you can always use merge proposals if you are not confident about a
particular commit and want someone else to review it before it goes
into the main branch.
