I think the excitement about documentation is great, you can never
work too hard on documentation. However I don't see the value in
creating yet another source. I'd be more excited to see people
contributing to the already existing documentation on the Wiki [0],
the help site [1] [2] and the semi-official manual [3]. Dispersing
effort on multiple projects to achieve the same goal seems a bit
counter-productive to me but I guess that's the great thing about
Linux, everyone is free to do as they please.

I totally understand and agree with you. We are trying to create user-centric manual for all major distros and Lubuntu is going to be a hot property. The users who come to Muktware to read stories will be able to see benefits from such manuals. Since all manuals are at one place, they can also learn how something is done on other distros.

In the end all it is going to do is complement each other.

NOTE: We are about to publish a user-centric manual of Arch Linux as well :-). So, you can look at it as all the quality manuals at one place. We will assist the team with the official manual as well. Our content is released under CC licence so anyone can use it.
