Although I've always been intrigued in the arena of actually making a doc/code patch contribution to any open source project, I feel this a very good time to look into howto perform this type of task. I'll review the FreeBSD developers handbook: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/developers-handbook/ tomorrow to find out more on how I can do this. It's something I've always wanted to do, and it seems like a great opportunity for me to get 'right into' making an actual contribution for what I have so freely taken. Any other resources I can be pointed to for making Doc contributions will be graciously accepted for mine, and hopefully others interest.
