Tom, welcome.  Sorry about the rocky-road to start. :)

I see that you are self-directed and know where you are going, so don't
need to ask if you want any directions.  The team is available on
#fedora-docs usually around the clock, since we are in Asia, Europe, and
the Americas.

Two thoughts about this:

* Don't hesitate to write new content, no matter what your Fedora
experience.  We have users who are far less experienced than you who
need good content from us, and your perspective and capabilities are
valuable _right_now_. :)

* We've discussed having non-English documentation that gets translated
to English.  The only requirement is to have another native
reader/speaker who can be your editor, which is true for _all_

I encourage you to write what you want in whatever language you are
comfortable with, then come here for peer review and to find a native-
reading (or very, very good non-native reader) to be your editor.
