Adam, it is not a good idea to just start editing documents without
checking with the owner first.  This is especially true since you are
just starting with the project and we haven't seen any of your existing
documentation work.  I am sure you will do a good job, though.  What you
might want to do is start by looking at the drafts available in the wiki
at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Drafts and seeing what you can
help with there.  We need help with the Getting Started Guide, the
Desktop Users Guide, and so forth.  Feel free to pitch in since you get
much more immediate results there!

We have a number of people in the Docs Project who are experienced Linux
people and will be happy to lend their expertise.  You may want to make
a habit of checking in and hanging out on IRC at #fedora-docs and
meeting some of our wonderful contributors.  Hope to see you there!
