Earlier i posted saying i too would like to be involved in writing this 
guide. I have had much experience, as has been written in my self-intro ages 
ago. I lurk, and am still keeping note of changes with the Games wikis that 
i edit, though time has been short recently with studies at uni, being with 
my wife, making money, and trying to develop my writing, by doing articles 
for publication.

I know Rahul submitted my FC6 Test 1 review to Fedora Weekly News (FWN). I 
have been keen to do some writing, but lack the technical aspect of the 
writing. I can review and do technical install guides, and one need only 
look at my ndiswrapper wireless guide (yes, yes i know it is taboo and 
forbidden on fedora-docs hence not published), which will be submitted soon 
to fedora unity project. In short i am a writer of many small articles, over 
75 to be precise, inc technical, and freelance pieces.

I am really interested in doing a lot more work. I may be appearing to be 
one of the 95% of 600+ people who dont get involved, but i am not. I didnt 
really get on with cvs much, as i didnt understand its usage, as those who 
helped when i first joined are painfully aware (Karsten, Paul, etc). I am 
however keen and active as work allows, and to learn all i need to in order 
to be an active writer/editor. Please accept this as an offer to do the 
writing. Any editor who is willing to help refine my work to technical docs 
standard, please guide me. Below i have just outlined my technical 
background, just for those wishing to see if i am right for such a project.

Karsten, consider me a part of the team, or not, but i do wish to work and 
be involved in both writing and wiki editing. I shall hope to devote more 
time to this good project.
