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:


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.
