I get the feeling I've heard this one before.
Hate to be cynical, but every time someone comes along and bitches and 
then offers to contribute 'real' documentation, all good intentions, 
they usually give it up within a few days, never to be heard from again.
I'm glad to help you out, but please don't waste my time.  It will take 
time and effort to write quality documentation.
