ubuntu-doc for raring

If you look at who has setup every series that is listed for Ubuntu-docs, it was Matthew East.
Matt is no longer actively involved, and, in my opinion, that leaves an enormous void that, as far as I know, has not been backfilled.
Furthermore, Jeremy Bicha was another enormous contributor to the bigger picture side of Ubuntu-docs, but if you refer to this spot "[17:08] <jbicha>" in some minutes to a recent docs irc meeting, see here: http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2013/02/28/%23ubuntu-meeting.txt then you should realize "Oh no!".

I don't know that Ubuntu-docs realizes the magnitude of what is not getting done and how fast the "Official Documentation" is falling behind.

Myself, I only work on the Ubuntu serverguide, and while some work has been done for the raring cycle, it was only about 15% of what should have been done. It is becoming difficult to call it "Official Documentation".
I have been asking for about a week about setting up such that translations can start, as I'm not sure what to do. I had hoped to be ready the day after string freeze, or yesterday.
I guess I'll just go ahead and initialize the translations stuff, and beg forgiveness later if I mess it up. Give me another day to do it.

I can't find ubuntu-doc for raring at Launchpad (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu-docs)

We need to translate it before final release, but as I can see, there aren't any work on raring documentation at all.

So, what should we do? Will raring have an official documentation, availible for translation?
