I was contributing to documentation over at Ark Linux within a month after I
started. It wasn't much, and most of it was adding details to existing
documentation, but I did contribute. That's what most inexperienced users
will do if they do contribute: add in details. That's quite useful to have:
since most of us have been doing awhile, it's hard for us to write from a
newbie perspective, so we might leave out important details or not be clear.
A new user who's reading that might get just enough detail to figure it out
on their own and want to help improve the article.
