I have contributed a document to the documentation team.  While it is 
unrelated to the autobuilds and the handbook, it shows interest in the 
team.  I know that Josh has been doing an immense amount of work for the 
doc team, which is evidenced by his name showing up as "editor" on tons 
of the existing documents.  As Ben said, documentation is one of the 
strongest points of Gentoo, so we cannot let it go by the wayside.  I'm 
willing to learn the ins and outs of editing existing documents, and the 
other aspects of the doc team.

Two people actively working on documents is not enough either, but it 
will hopefully offset some of the labour.  I don't think that the team 
would have any trouble finding volunteers to help out with editing, and 
that an announcement should be made on the forum.
