Good stuff, and a positive way forward. I see already that there's
other people helping out with the pages you are writing.

In general I encourage everyone where possible to work on improving
existing pages (instead of or in addition to starting new pages). The
art of good documentation writing also involves the (often forgotten)
art of figuring out how to say the same thing more clearly using fewer

Illustrations are also important, and fairly easy to get started with.

Keep up the good work,
