I don't understand how you can help all that much then... I guess you
could grab the files from
http://cvs.debian.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/boot-floppies/ ...

And keep grabbing them/merging them as there are updates, and send
'diff -u' output to the debian-boot list.

No, it needs to be integrated into the existing materials found at
documentation/en/*.sgml.  Haven't I said this before?
