No, we have not been using bugzilla for the user guides. Discussion is
on the documentation mailing list, and we use ODFAuthors website for
sharing files. Here is a page of introductory info, with links to more

(Some of this may be out of date, so do let us know if something
doesn't match what you see.)

We are supposed to track what we're doing on the wiki, here:

Functionality. Is it up to date for v5.2?
Did I miss something that should be included? Do the illustrations
match LO when you follow the instructions?

These are each individual books. Most of them have not been updated in
awhile. They correspond to the lists on this wiki page:

So all the chapters of the *Getting Started Guide* are in that folder,
and the chapters for the *Writer Guide* (a separate book) are in a
different folder on ODFAuthors.

BTW, several chapters in the Writer Guide for v5.2 also need review.
These are a bit more difficult because that book is being revised from
v4.2 to v5.2, so there are many pages of release notes to go through
-- and many more changes needed in illustrations and instructions.

I see you have an account on the ODFAuthors site. If you don't already
have an account on the wiki, you can create one for yourself.

P.S. I recommend that you send all correspondence to the documentation
list, not just to me. I am not always available, but usually there is
someone who can answer questions for you.
