   Dear all: I am a journalist and writer, and a heavy user of Lyx.
   Please let me know if you need any help (volunteering, without fee) to
   help write or edit Lyx help files for users. I am not a techie, but
   understand the software ... with guidance I could do it. My English
   skills are near-native speaker level. FN

I don't know what your first language is but if there is not already
a version of the Lyx documentation in your language then translating
the documentation into that language would be a great help both to
Lyx and to those who speak your language.

You could also work on translating the English phrases of Lyx itself
into your language.  Perhaps some Lyx developer would help you
with this remotely.

If that is not enough work for you, your help with the English Lyx
documentation is of course welcome.

Thanks for the offer. My first suggestion would be to describe to the 
LyX documentation list. It's low volume, but issues relating to the docs 
tend to get discussed there.


Generally, though, the documentation is written by whoever has the 
initiative to do it. So if there's something you think isn't clear, 
could be better explained, or just isn't included, then try to do better 
and post your changes to the docs list. The maintainer of the relevant 
manual will then discuss them with you. For the tutorial, user's guide, 
and math manual, that's Uwe Stohr; for the customization and additional 
features manuals (I think), that's me. Others don't have a dedicated 
maintainer.


Hint: Use change tracking when you make these sorts of changes, so it's 
easy for us to identify them.

In my humble opinion, this offer of Mr Noronha should be appreciated. A 
touch of an artist from a non-programming area would be a very valuable 
addition to LyX project.
