We have wiki.documentfoundation.org

That’s probably never going to happen - though more documentation is always great, there’s a certain level of code reading ability you need if you want to hack on the core code :-)

Already started :-)

Ummm… we’ve been doing this for years.

Any contributions are always greatfully accepted! Try https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development <https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development>

We do this already.

We’re always looking for folks to help us document the codebase :-) Developing LibreOffice can have a steep learning curve, but if I could recommend the first thing to do is to use git to get the source code, then build it successfully, then hack away!
I find that http://opengrok.libreoffice.org <http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/> is a great start if you want to just read the codebase.
Once you start finding things to fix, then have a look at the gerrit pages on the Wiki.
Welcome aboard :-) Great to see folks who want to contribute, we’re pretty friendly and there’s a place for everyone. What programming skills do you have, out of interest?
