and
[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocumentationTeam/GettingStarted].
Information on how to check out the current documentation may be found here: [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocumentationTeam/Repository].
Please provide patches against the latest repository.

The grammar editors proof-read others' text to make it more understandable and easy-to-read. To be an editor, you need good English skills but no technical skills.

If you don't feel like learning about the technical stuff(subversion, DocBook, writing patches), you may also simply send texts, ideas & suggestions to either ubuntu-doc@lists.ubuntu.com or xubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com .  * Luca Manlio De Lisi (Filtro''''''Man)

= Misc = == Technical editor ==
The technical editors make sure that the documentation is technically correct. This includes making sure the right default applications are covered and that all the technical details are correct and work as expected. To be a technical editor, you need good knowledge of Xubuntu and technical skills to understand what different things do.

== Docbook editor ==
The Docbook editors convert the written documentation into the [[http://www.docbook.org/|Docbook]] syntax. You don't need any writing skills, but you need to have some technical skills. We're also hoping that the Docbook editors are willing to contribute for a longer period of time than just the Quantal cycle, but it's not a hard requirement.
