I would like to contribute to help or guidance in use of LibreOffice
where I can see it assisting current users to simplify tasks or filling
in a hole for those who may be more familiar with MSO. Not so much
explaining how LibreOffice functions but help about using LibreOffice to
complete specific tasks, especially for less experienced users (of which
we have a company full).
I mentioned in a post to this list a week or so ago an alternative
process for creating documents with data inserted from a spread sheet.
Pulkit kindly replied and suggested a wiki page, the wiki site directed
me to I downloaded the source, checked
out and decided it
was relatively straight forward to edit a page.

I then wondered about the philosophy behind wiki vs help documentation
so checked the MSO help pages on line and found they were relatively
interested in helping users achieve tasks.

I understand there can't be a free for all, would seem a logical umbrella for all help
content but there could be a good case for wiki pages referenced from
help pages. Then there is the issue of how do users find help. Again
referencing from a search in seems logical.
I would like some guidance on where to find the appropriate place to
contribute. Is it simply a case of presenting a proposal for
documentation to this list orĀ  emailing it to documentation at
libreoffice dot org as referenced at and waiting for feedback.

Cheers, Steve
