Same thing here, I'm finding it very hard to contribute to the Ubuntu
Doc team (the wiki part) because of the lack reason to keep the wiki
update to date (because of having Ubuntu Forums, Ask Ubuntu, and the
support channel on freenode.net).  Having that set aside, I heard from
someone that if you have the skills and you are woman in the IT field,
you guaranteed a job in the field.  Is that correct?
