nixternalOK, can you do HTML?03:27
nixternalgreat, so DocBook/XML should be easy to pick up03:27
* koolkat wonders what your talking about03:28
nixternalBazaar is similar to Subversion03:28
koolkatSo...that are you talking about :-?03:28
nixternalwell, we code all of our documentation in DocBook/XML, and all of our code lies within a Bazaar repository on Launchpad03:28
koolkatOh...I know how to do the Doc stuff03:28
nixternalthat has some good information on how to get involved03:29
koolkatI already did like 20 today03:29
koolkatso .....how do they make me a member?03:29
nixternalsign up on the documentation team mailing list at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-doc03:30
koolkatare you a member?03:30
nixternalwell, you have to contribute for a while before you become a member03:30
nixternalyes, myself and jjesse who isn't around maintain all of the Kubuntu and KDE documentation03:30
koolkatyou want to slip in a few good word for me.....wink wink03:31
nixternalthe head people for the Ubuntu side are mdke, who is obviously sleeping right now, and Phil Bull, who I don't see on IRC much, but he is all over the mailing list03:31
nixternalwell, gotta see your work first03:31
nixternalthere are student memberships available, and if you ask about it on the mailing list, Phil will probably fill you in on that team info03:32
koolkatmy work.....I am doing a lot in the applications list...and03:32
koolkati cant remember03:32
koolkatwhat i wasgoing to say03:33
nixternalwell, if it is Gnome related, there is a 99.9% chance I will rarely see your work03:33
nixternaland Phil should have a list of jobs available either now or fairly soon for Ubuntu 8.04 documentation03:34
koolkatnixternal: i subscribed to the mailing list03:36
nixternalit isn't all that high traffic, so it is easy to keep up with03:37
koolkatanything else that i should do?03:37
nixternalfamiliarize yourself with docbook, bazaar, and some of the things mentioned on the wiki page and you should be good to go03:38
