We will soon (before the end of the year) announce the "Lessons for
Lizard" (LfL) project. It is a community cookbook-style book project
for the openSUSE distribution. The texts are written in DocBook XML
but for people with less experience in XML you can also write in pure
ASCII. Someone (the community or the documentation department) have
to transcript it into XML so we can create HTML and PDF of it.

If you want to contribute to LfL you can write new texts, improve
existing documents, ...

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions feel free to
ask. :-)
