Hi Lana

Pleased to meet you too. My random times will definitely coincide on a
semi-regular basis :-) I spend a reasonable amount of time talking to Australia
as I have friends in Wollongong and Melbourne so I am quite familiar with your
timezone ;)

My first plan is to work out docbook I think, unless you would recommend
looking at github first. I have a block of 4 days off from tonight so I shall
see were I get to and then I may well be taking you up on your kind offer for

Hi Robin,

Lovely to meet you! I'm Lana, I work on the SUSE Manager documentation team,
and I've been trying for a little while to get a community group together to
work on openSUSE documentation. Great to have you here! I'm based in
Australia, so your random times will hopefully sometimes meet up with my
random times ;)

Let me know if I can give you any pointers at any time.

Hi everyone
Just a wish intro. I am looking at helping with documentation for the
project if I can.
I have been using Linux since the late 90's and used many different
flavours for various purposes over the years.
I haven't had much chance to contribute during that time but due to my work
commitments I shall have more time to do so.
I will just be a lurker for a little while as I will need to familiarise
myself with docbook and github but hope to be able to help contributing
As this is my first venture in a project like this any pointers would be
very gratefully received although I am happy to figure stuff out by myself
where I can.
Oh and if it makes any difference to anyone, I live in the south or the UK
and work 4 on 4 off nightshifts so will be around at all sorts of random
