Xubuntu documentation

I've just subscribed to this list, as getting Ubuntu to run efficiently
on older hardware is a particular interest of mine. That and I like XFCE.

I've just emailed ubuntu-docs raising the question of documentation for 
Xubuntu, and working with K/Ubuntu doc writers. Althought the 
'frontline' apps are different, there's a lot of overlap in, for 
example, K/X/Ubuntu's use of Sudo, and Rosetta as translation interface.

I'm interested in sorting out docs and help for Xubuntu; not just 
writing them, but working out some srt of help browser. (Personal 
feeling is that it should be html, and accessed through the chosen web 
browser. I presume Xubuntu isn't going to import Yelp, and XFCE seems to 
use html for it's own docs.)

Personal notice: I don't think I'll have much time to do any 
ubuntu-oriented work until the new year, but would like to start 
planning for Xubuntu-docs.
