One way to start with the desktop help is to choose a bug from this
The right bug for you depends on various factors such as your
knowledge of Ubuntu and how big or small a job you want to take on.
In my (limited) experience the time-consuming part in tackling a
documentation bug is understanding the problem.
Once you've chosen a bug and you understand the problem and you've
decided what changes you want to make, you make the changes in a
local copy of the help and propose a merge of your changes into the
development branch. (For the changes I've made Gunnar has reviewed
them and has been very helpful.) Instructions here:
If you have any questions let me know and I'll try to answer.
I addition to Chris' pointers I'd like to add a summary of working areas
as regards the desktop guide, which I posted recently:
There is also the server guide, which is different in style and whose
target audience is different compared to the desktop guide, but which -
just like the desktop guide - is always in need of some love:
