Hey Ryan,

Thanks for joining...I'm also in Brisbane.

Probably best to ask someone else, but I'm pretty sure you can
edit/add what you like to the wiki, and then that content is converted
to XML at the end.

Regarding the Desktop User Guide, there is a table of what is
happening at the bottom of the page:

There is also an Admin Guide,, which
at the moment is missing a few sections. The sections marked
"Edit-Ready" need someone other than the original person who wrote it,
go over it and make sure it makes sense, spelling, grammar etc. There
a guidelines for wiki editing here:

I'm sure someone else will have better ideas.
