Most of the time people just drop by irc instead of using the mailing
list, but this is fine.

Most of the documentation is in the release tarballs.  If you have a
specific question or need documentation on something please direct it to
the list.

And as always, I accept new documentation also :-)

Go ahead and enter them as a bug.  If you can/want submit your changes
as a patch, and that will get it fixed quicker.

Yep, that should be fine.

Let us know if there is anything else we can help with.
