For the last 2 chapters, we can split them into sections if contributors
can't manage the whole chapter one their own.

So these are the openings. Let me know if you are interested in any section
I think by the time the jobs/openings page is updated, you can start
sharing via social media, blogs etc. the call for new authors.

@Kevin: Could you update the jobs page with the above info ?


Thank you for your time all ! Let's get rolling !
