Are you already subscribed to the list? That
is the mailing list for developers so I'd suggest to ask there.

What kind of documentation do you want to write and contribute? For
the API, the Server, or for Studio? I ask because we use different
systems. The website and developer documentation is available in
various confluence wiki spaces [1]. Also the API and the old server
documentation is in the wiki [1]. The user documentation for Studio is
written in Docbook and under version control in SVN [2]. For the
server we also started to move the user documentation to Docbook and
SVN, but I'm not sure what's the state here. I think it needs to be
discussed which way to go (wiki or Docbook or something else).

Kind Regards,

PS: I'm just curious, does the 'wue' in your email address mean
'Würzburg'? I ask because I studied in Würzburg and grew up in the
area (Sulzfeld).
