I accept that offer! As a professional writer, I'll be happy to contribute some
documentation. Besides, I don't like to point out problems without being willing
to help with the solution. I don't use any of the three IM tools you list; my
company mandates AIM. But I've got an IRC client (never used it, but it's
installed). OTOH, maybe email is best because then I have time to formulate
questions more carefully. I'd suggest that as first choice but hold IRC as a
backup plan in case we need something more interactive than email. Does that
work for you?
