Hi Benjamin,

I'm April from Cebu City, Philippines and I've just recently signed up to
the Ubuntu Manual group. As an introduction, I hold a degree in Computer
Engineering and have worked as a writer for almost five years -- three of
which I spent as a technical writer for a research and development company.
I'm fairly new to Ubuntu, having been using it on and off for the past 3

I have had some aspirations of making a contribution, however small, to the
further development of open source software (preferably along the lines of
my training, i.e., technical writing/documentation), and I hope to be able
to do more -- learn, grow, and contribute -- through this community.

I just started contributing to the GNOME Documentation project but would
also love to get involved with the Ubuntu Manual Project as this operating
system is the one I'm most familiar with (I am also using this for for the
creation of the GNOME content). To start, I've gone over the instructions
detailed on your website (http://ubuntu-manual.org/getinvolved/authors).

With that, I'd like to ask you where exactly I can be of help. There are
several topics listed on the website which are said to require some
documentation. Is this an updated list? Where would you suggest I start? I'd
appreciate any information on this as I am really excited to start

Thanks a lot and best regards,

Benjamin Humphrey
