I worked on some of it with Cody one night online, I didn't get anywhere
because I ended up working on something that had already been done but I
think what we need is a wiki setup that can just be edited on the fly and
then easily be translated into docbook format (if this is even possible),
but I would be willing to help out with some docs if/when I run into spare
