WORK IN PROGRESS, HELP NEEDED
If you want to contribute, send us a sample of text you'd write for the new manual, and we will consider adding you an account. You can work on the manual in the Wiki, but if you prefer, supplying us with HTML or TeX sources is fine, too (we will then translate them for the Wiki).

You can have a look at our TODO page for a list of tasks that need to be done.
