fwiw, that's my intention; in fact, it's why i participated in this thread at
all. given my current level of erlangery, contributing docs is about the upper
extent of my usefulness to erlang right now. it has the added bonus of letting
me learn a bit more about how things are put together (explaining is a great
way of learning, after all). i've written a fair amount of technical
documentation and examples in other free software projects so i have a rough
idea of what i'm getting myself into. ;)
that said, many of the questions i pose stand as there are a good number of
things that could be done to improve not just the content of the docs, but
also the workflow around creating and consuming them; as a newcomer i have
neither the insight nor the position to propose answers to those question, so
i simply ask them hoping someone such as yourself will open up a can of wisdom
and provide some guidance.
as you noted in your earlier email:
"Ease of making these changes and then getting them integrated is of
course the big question. If it's a substantial barrier, lowering that
friction is something probably worth investing in."
