hm, so should we:
- ask on the ubuntu-doc mailing list?
- ask about it? he is mentioned 
on the xubuntu wiki page, and it looks like he has something to do with 
xubuntu documentation.
- develop it externally?

two more questions:

- how finished is the Panel/Menu Setup? I wouldn't want to write all the 
"please click on Applications->Network->Firefox" sequences before the 
menu structure / panel layout is "frozen".
i remember there was some talk about having a 'Places' item next to 
'Applications' in the panel, just like gnome-ubuntu. is that still 
planned? this might be important for writing the guide.

-how finished is the default look, esp. window decoration? If the 
default window decoration may still change, I'd rather wait before I 
take more screenshots.
