Welcome and thank you for your offer!

The OpenCMIS project desperately needs more documentation and 
introduction. It is difficult those of us who are working on and with it 
for months now to identify the stumbling blocks for beginners.

You are welcome to add new pages to OpenCMIS Wiki [1] if you want. For 
smaller insights there is also the OpenCMIS Cookbook [2].

Thanks again,
