That's good. People commonly likes to write but not pay attention to spelling 
and grammar :-) And we'll need a good co-editor for sure! I'm currently 
interested in writing about Games in Fedora, and a work is currently being 
done in the Wiki:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Games

That's a good start to create a reference for a good Game experience in 
Fedora, all open-sourced. I was thinking on creating a guide, maybe named FGG 
(Fedora Gaming Guide), telling about all the games available, what are they 
about, how to play, etc. I'll present this idea today in the FDSCo meeting at 
#fedora-docs. Maybe you are interested in helping it too :-)

That's great!

I'm currently working in FDP mainly with translations. I'm from Brazil and 
here we have many people that likes to write about Fedora and Linux, but they 
don't write in English well (like me, my grammar isn't so good as you have 
noticed :).

One of my ideas is to integrate these foreign people into the upstream FDP, 
and as we get more documents translated to English, we'll have a need for 
good revisions. This project is still in early stages, so we'll stay in 
touch :-)
