Not one, three.
I see the need for good documentation, but I doubt that somebody will
take care of another FAQ/newbie guide. We already have a lot of
documentation which is in rather good shape (new handbook) or in bad
shape (old handbook and most pages under documentation/).
Nobody really takes care about that stuff and to be honest I can
understand why :/ If I just look at the FAQ page
http://www.dragonflybsd.org/docs/faq/FAQ-English/ ... puhh ... there is
some room for improvement.
IMO we need some real users (no need to be a committer/developer) who
take care about our website and documentation. FreeBSD has a
documentation team for this (I know, some ppl don't like this or think,
we don't need such a team).
