Hi,

I personally don't have much database experience beyond the trivial,
but I'm good at testing, critiquing, and editing, revising... if only
we can find some database people to write an initial draft!

For me personally, the best Base introduction was a little tutorial 
called base_entwurf_einer_datenbank.odt[1] (translated back to English 
it might read "Base - creating a sample database"). It claims to be a 
German "polished" translation of issue 28136 [2].

As my impression of the doc team here around is rather good ;) I just 
want to suggest you to think also of a tutorial-like Guide. Lerning by 
doing is Not Bad(TM). 

Of course, the tutorial only covers a very little section of the Base 
functionality but it enables the reader to work with Base better than 
any other doc I found. 

So the first idea could be to extend this tutorial (e.g. how n:m 
relations are handled in queries, forms and reports). 

Another idea might be to add some background chapters about database 
theory, but there are plenty of them around so this does not really 
seem necessary. 

Of course, only if you want to take this little tutorial as starting 
point - it's just a suggestion.
