I just wanted to point out that users like me probably have knowledge
about a software domain, but will write help pages and Wikis in broken
English. Since everybody can create an Ubuntu One account, everybody
can edit the help pages and Wikis. Any changes made are stored by the
page histories, so nothing gets lost, if somebody edits it, even if
somebody by accident should remove the entire text.

We shouldn't invent concepts of rocket science to provide help
pages/Wikis. The concept of a Wiki is very simple and already worked for
a long time. Let's stay with the KISS principle,

If you find any errors or if you even could provide useful links go and


and other pages.

Some contributed much, e.g. Set and Kaj, others contributed close to
nothing, e.g. me. Many a little makes a mickle. The German
equivalent saying: "Small domestic animals poo too." (Kleinvieh macht
auch Mist.)
