It is even better if the people who see a problem with the documentation
submit patches for the affected areas. Even if your text is technically
incorrect it will be written to clarify an area that is no-brainer to the
seasoned user. The no-brainer part is extremely important, as it means
that the document will never be fixed satisfactory unless you provide the
text that works for YOU on first reading.

So - patches welcome :)
