No, you don't need to build on multiple platforms... although as
Han-Wen mentioned, there are vacant jobs that require such a

To clarify one possible misunderstanding, the Documentation Editor
is a editor-in-chief position, overseeing all the documentation
work.  There are some people editing the documentation as part of
GDP, but that's different from this position.  The DE needs to be
able to handle git, patches, diffs, building the docs, and fixing
broken doc-builds.

For the moment, I suggest getting involved in GDP.

If you want to jump into the technical side of things, see
"advanced-tech.txt" (or perhaps you have already done this).  To
get an introduction to the non-technical side of the job, I
recommend editing one of the unclaimed sections of NR1.  (see
"current.txt")  "Text" has not been touched yet, while "Pitches"
is almost perfect.  Are you familiar with texinfo?
