Replying below to "my" part. ;-)

I usually read complaints about the bad state of openSUSE documentation.

Ancor, this is a rather vague and general statement, can you please provide
more details? Questions that immediately come to my mind are:

* Does this refer to the openSUSE manuals at or to
the openSUSE Wiki at Both?

The openSUSE wiki

* Where have you read these complaints and have they been passed on to the
Doc team or the Wiki team? If so, what happened to the feedback?

Usually in mailing lists. I have not passed that information because I
believe that the not-so-shiny state of the Wiki is a more than known
issue. I'm subscribed to the (now extinct) wiki ML and to the Spanish
translators one, and my feeling is that everyone there assumes the
situation is far from optimal. No need to repeat that over and over. :-)

Maybe we can use Season of Docs (the Google's equivalent to Summer of
Code) to fix some stuff.

Maybe we should first find out what needs fixing, where is this needed and
how to integrate existing resources... .

Sure. And that's exactly what we need volunteers for. Applying for GSoD
will imply quite some previous work.
