I would love the opportunity to support GNU with my time.  I believe it
is important for such a well-respected organization as GNU to be as
grammatically correct and spelling-bug-free as possible, especially when
people who speak english as a second (or third!) language are involved in
GNU efforts.  Also, in order to retain the GNU's level of professionalism,
a finer-toothed comb could be used to pick the bugs out of the

Pardon my sick metaphor, but please take my offer to help seriously.  I
would be honored to proofread/help webmaster the GNU web site.

I've actually thought of wrapping ispell in a script (maybe in python?)
that spell checks the DocumentRoot directory downward, but have yet to
