Just let us know on the list after you've done that (up through the CLA
requirement) and created a Wiki account. We can add you to the
EditGroup and you can start editing!
Do you feel you could look at some of the existing documents' style and
try to mimic that in your editing? That's not a make-or-break issue,
but we do aim for some consistent tone. You can find some guidelines on
the wiki¹ -- it's rather long but worth a read if you plan on editing
for formal docs.
Of course, if you have any questions -- even if you think they're silly
-- we are eager and willing to help you help us. :-) Feel free to post
here or on IRC Freenode² at #fedora-docs.
