I'll bet a lot of people have been asking this question though, there
couldn't be any harm in having it documented right?

If we had better documentation on the web pages, developers would spend less
time answering the same old questions and less people would have to dig
through the list archives for answers. Certainly not the highest priority,
but it would give everybody a break.
I've just finished finals and I'm looking for somewhere to contribute (as I
imagine a lot of people will be). Writing some documentation seems like a
good place to start since I don't have any useful coding skills, but I don't
like the idea of just posting my work on my own site somewhere . What
would be involved in getting bug fixes or new additions into hurd.gnu.org ?
What sort of format should these be in?
Also, where do you want these bug reports posted? Seems like a lot of spam
to the list if it's just a broken link or spelling error or whatever else..
is there someone in particular who's maintaining the web pages that this
mail should go to?
 It seems like everybody's got their own hurd site right now with their
own work on it, and few of them are actually referenced anywhere on
hurd.gnu.org. Seems to me it would be useful to either try to get this
stuff moved/mirrored to the main site, or try to keep an updated links page
(both are things that someone like me could be doing).
