Progress so far:

(1) A script exists to get people set up with the tools they need, it
just needs a trivial change to branch "our" bzr branch not the main
ubuntu-manual one.

(2) A bzr branch is now created, but currently empty.  I'll start
populating it with the "infrastructure" files needed in the next few days.

Mailing list is fine at the moment.

I see myself as mainly a developer (toolsmith) here, getting things
started out, and probably also some editing work later as time permits.

Until we define our basic document structure (presumably as close to
that of Ubuntu Manual as we can), no-one can state which chapters they
will work on, because there *is* no list of chapters!  So, specifics of
"how you'd like to contribute" are going to be awkward to specify until
we reach the point of having an agreed chapter list/table of contents.

What kind of description of "how you'd like to contribute" are you
hoping for from people at this early stage?  Just one of

 * Author
 * Editor
 * Translator
 * Programmer
 * Designer

as defined at http://ubuntu-manual.org/getinvolved ?

If we do need a meeting, we should use IRC.  It is familiar, low
bandwidth, and meetingology exists.
