HI David;
Your writng and editing experience will be a very valuable asset to the 
group. The user documentation is being worked on at the the mediawiki 
(mwiki), so you need to get an account. For more details, see this page

The Writer guide could greatly benefit from attention from an 
experienced editor and your knowledge of Draw would make you the ideal 
person to take up the writing task for that guide.

Both of these tasks are needed, please write back to the list and let us 
know which one you would like to start with.

Welcome to the Apache Open Office Documentation team, I looked forward 
to working with you.
