Hi David,

thanks for the offer also from my side. There are various writeups 
around in the net about "how you can help", e.g. 
http://gnomesupport.org/wiki/index.php/GnuCashDevelopment and linked 
pages there. Especially the wiki pages are a place where documentation 
contributions can be added easily.
