You sound like a contemporary of mine. However, I haven't had the
pleasure of retiring yet.

That's great - at the same time, I hope you decide to contribute to
some documents in English, such as the Desktop Users Guide. You
can then translate them into Dutch. :-)

Since you are introducing yourself on the mailing list, I'm sure that you
have read the guidelines in the wiki for participating in the Fedora Docs

Once again, welcome to the Fedora Docs Project.
