h2. Medium

# *Write Documentation.* This includes both user guides and developer documentation. Register
for an [Apache OpenOffice Community wiki account|http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation].
Skills needed: familiarity with Media Wiki. Skills gained: more wiki experience, group collaboration.
# *Develop a trademark approval process.* This would be used by the PPMC for external entities
that want to use our trademarks.  Write up the process, review with Apache Branding, and get
consensus on the ooo-dev list.  Add the process definition to the Community FAQ's on the website.
 Things to consider include criteria for approval and record keeping.  A good starting point
might be [this |http://markmail.org/message/r6ud3wtajm5ryvwi] email.  Skills gained: greater
understanding of Apache branding requirements.
# *Write up a tutorial (or link to a good existing one) that explains how new project volunteers
should create and submit patches* (for publication on the Project website). Skills needed:
an understanding of Markdown and probably committer rights to the project website. (Already

new committers and PPMC members, including form letters, userid generation, tracking, etc. 
Link it from the [PPMC FAQs|http://incubator.apache.org/openofficeorg/ppmc-faqs.html] page
on the website. Consider the steps that the PPMC needs to do, as well as the new committer,
so this can be a reference for both.  Skills needed: writing.  Skills gained:
Apache CMS.  Note: this task is suitable for existing PPMC members only.
