Hi, everyone,

We hope to release LyX 2.4.0 in the next couple months. Before then,
there is some work that needs to be done on the documentation. If you've
always wanted to contribute to LyX but haven't because you don't know
how to code, then this is your chance!

The main task that needs doing is to copy the changes made in the
English documentation over into the Spanish, French, German, and
Japanese manuals, so that the translators can do translate it. You do
NOT have to speak one of these languages to do this (though that might
be helpful). It really is just a matter of going through the English
manual, finding the new or changed material (which is marked with
change-tracking), and pasting it into the other manuals. It's rote work,
but important work nonetheless.

Longer-term, we could also use someone to act as documentation manager
during the 2.5 development cycle and to do this kind of work along the
way. If you'd be interested in that job, please do let us know.
