Yes and no. Let me start again before I create more confusion:

1) I realise Eike only asked for a bug to be filed (that in itself is hurdle #1 as it requires knowledge of what a bug is and how to file one by the way) 2) Eike referred to the Wiki page (presumably to give Kairaba additional information on requesting new languages) 3) I went and read said Wiki page and it struck me how confusing this seems to me and how scary it must be to someone who is new to localization and primarily a new translator and who googles "localizing LibreOffice" and comes across said page without knowing about this l10n mailing list, so that's hurdle #2 4) I then posted whether that page should not have a big sign slapped across it saying "if this confuses you, just send us an email" (and foolishly in the same sentence suggested this *might* require a new list. That's clearly a lead balloon so let's not bring that up again)

I just googled "translating LibreOffice" and actually this page (which is a lot more readable... I'd be tempted to add a small diagram though) does come out on top so perhaps it was just an unfortunate misunderstanding on my behlaf that, having followed Eike's link, I assume that was the main landing page for potential localizers.

So I guess it narrows my concerns down to a) is that a good reference page to give to new people whose IT skills are an unknown and b) if bugfiling should really be done by the newbie?

I'm sorry, there must be a misunderstanding. Eike has just asked for a
bug filed in bugzilla, not more. New localizers do not need to
understand all details of LibreOffice Localization Guide. We collected
the knowledge there for developers, so it is a documentation for l10n
developers, although some parts of it might be interesting for
translators, too.
