The http://drupal.org/getting-involved section of the handbook has  
most of the information centralized. I would suggest reading through  
the "Contribute code" subsection (http://drupal.org/node/10259) and  
either editing pages directly or creating issues in the Documentation  
queue for places where things are unclear.
