This also might help you:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DocsProject/NewWriters

I'll see about adding that link to the information sent with the mailing
list subscription.

Yes, I agree, I think this is a great way to get involved and
contribute.

We don't have a formal mentoring arrangement, but it is not a bad idea.

As the least, when you have a document to work on (by picking one or
suggesting one), your editor can help with this mentoring.

Otherwise, this mailing list is not a bad place to ask open source
process questions.  We might even want to write up a general "how to
contribute to Fedora" tutorial.  :)

Welcome!

Is there anything you are interested in writing about?  There is no
topic too small for Fedora documentation.

You might also be interested in working on the release notes project:

One suggestion I have to start is to not use HTML in your email.  It is
not well received on Fedora mailing lists.  This is explained fairly
well in this article:
