The FreeBSD Documentation Project is always in search of new volunteers.
There are parts of the documentation that are, to put it charitably, a
little bit dusty.  (Clearly the preferential listings for floppies speaks
of this).

See for the best introduction on what the
doc project is, and how to contribute.  We have mailing lists (one for
-doc, and one for -www; the latter is about things that appear only on
the website).  We also have an IRC channel.

Basically, we have much more work than available volunteers right now.
I think you have some good ideas; the best thing, of course, would be if
you could develop patches (the subset of SGML that we use is really not
a very difficult markup language to learn), but if not, perhaps you can
participate on the freebsd-doc@ mailing list and see if you can attract
any interest in specific proposals.

Further discussion on this topic should probably go to -doc rathern than
-stable.  Thanks.
