I would like to assist in the development effort of GNU Emacs.  Tasks that I am
in a position to handle right now are:

1. Documentation: reviewing what exists and update information
2. Testing of changes in regular builds of GNU Emacs.

I have multiple platforms that I use, though not all of them would be readily
available for building kits from source.  I run on Windows NT 4.0 workstation
and Compaq Tru64 UNIX at work.  I might be able to periodically run test kits
there, but of course my work comes first in that place.

At home, I have three computers.  One of them runs Windows 98, the other two
usually have some form of Linux running on them.  It is one of these platforms
where I would most likely be able to do testing.  Right now, I have
Linux-Mandrake 8.0, Caldera OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4 and RedHat Linux 7.1.

I am really bothered by all of the complaining in the newsgroup comp.emacs
about the perceived inactivity in GNU Emacs.  I have long been an active user,
but I had previously been of the mindset that I could help out only if I was
going to write some code.  Well, I might get to do that some day, but
meanwhile, I would like to share my testing and documentation skills.

Please help me get started, and point me to some areas needing attention.  Help
me get plugged into the process.
