Hi Bonnie,

Thanks for writing and expressing an interest in volunteering with the
Apache OpenOffice project!

We're just starting up an effort to prepare new user documentation for
Apache OpenOffice 4.0, expected before mid-year.   We're currently
outlining the user guides and discussing some technical matters on how
we will do the work. So it is a great time to get involved.   Since
this is an international project, with most volunteers speaking
English as a 2nd or 3rd language, having a strong proofreader is
excellent.  And even with native speakers we need someone to
adjudicate American versus British variations!

I'd urge you to subscribe to our documentation mailing list by sending
an email to  After sending that
email you will receive a confirmation note.  When you respond to that
note you will then be subscribed to the mailing list.
