Yah, to be official and to include in Javi's work takes more than just
write short HOWTO's.  Editorial and translation synchronization are

Anyway, the first thing is write it out.  Let me point out that the
lower barrier entry point exists for you to start.


There you can publish your writing as long as you register your mail
address to get the login right.  The account comes with initial user web
page.  In my case:

When content becomes good enough, look for appropriate page to link
from.  Maybe one of the followings depending on what you write.
