did you really send an e-mail to me? Sorry, somehow it got lost then.

That would be great. Especially a native english speaker is needed. I
just started to get an overview about the current documents and think
about reorganizing the documentation a little bit.

There is

1) All about Gnu (allaboutgnu.xml, "help - Gnubg Manual (allabout) )
2) The F.A.Q (on the webpage)
3) The command line help ("help" - commands")
4) The former info files (gnubgdb.xml, "help" - Gnubg Manual (web) )
5) A wiki (on the webpage)

Alberts allaboutgnu is great, we should keep it as a fine tutorial
The f.a.q. needs some work, I collected a lot of questions from the
mailing-list or some boards (gammonu, bgonline) and will extend it. The
manual (former info files) definitely needs a lot of work. The wiki
should be for plain users, maybe we make some announcements here and

I suggest you begin with Albert Silvers "All about Gnu." Maybe you look
for misspellings and wrong phrases. Also make a note where (in your
opinion) his document could be extended. I think of multi-thread, new
screenshots, the database function, predefined rollouts, etc.

Let me know if you need any further assistance. And thanks again for
your offer.
