No problem.  I already laid out a roadmap, what particular item do you want
to work on first?  If it is incorporating new man pages content, I'd suggest
the external memory object interface rather than processor sets, as it is
much more interesting and relevant to the Hurd as of today.

If it is proofreading, starting with the IPC system is always the best way
to get a foot into Mach.
