Not from my end. :)

Getting to know and understand the OpenSuse Docbook environment is at the top of my to-do list. I want to get the initial bugs out of building from GIT and thereafter I want to spend my time focusing on how that system works.

After I understand how the system works I then need to become much more familiar with Quanta Plus in order to have a somewhat palatable environment for editing Docbook files.

I'm hoping after I have a clue about the entire process and I get an initial draft written for our user guides, we can place the user guides into GIT as Docbook files. Thereafter anybody can edit and submit patches.

I am willing to act as editor for approving those patches, but anybody who is qualified can help.

As I mentioned, with respect to end users who want to help and want to use a word processor, as of about 10 days ago I finally am able to build koffice, which means I now can study kword and develop a template for such contributors.

Ideally we might be able to have the best of both worlds. I'll need to strap on my helmet because I'm sure there will be many speed bumps ahead. :)
