You have already done the first step.
You can do the second step, whenever you want : if you see a question to which you can 
contribute a useful response, please do.
The next step would be the FAQ or Wiki. That's also fairly easy : go to
and see the "If you do decide to contribute," paragraph.
(You could for example start by providing some additional examples, as a FAQ article. And

I am sure that with a simple request on this list, a link to that FAQ could then be easily

added to the main docs).
If you want to contribute directly by improving the docs, that gets a bit more involved, 
because it requires downloading the code, submitting patches etc. But it can be done (I 
did it once, at a time when I wasn't even sure what "diff" meant).
That will lead you here :
(Note: the process for the documentation is exactly the same as for the code; and as a 
contribution, it will be appreciated in the same way - or even more, considering the 
inherent aversion of programmers toward documentation..)
And the ultimate reward (after a few years of hard and consciencious work) would be here :
