How about this? Until we get to know each other and you gauge my capabilities, I'll research and 
document whatever's important to you. I think that initially my most important role would be as an 
editor -- mostly grammar checking. I hope to also add some user perspective and I trust that you 
will not reject what I suggest without thinking about it.

This will be a long journey during which the path will unfold before us. I can be patient.

My experience has been to give users many, many examples having consistent structures with faith 
that they will see the important patterns. You know, humans are reported to be very good at seeing 

Remember a while ago when I asked folks to post working ffmpeg command lines no matter the task or 
format? My request was rebuffed, but what I was trying to do was gain experience by looking for 
patterns -- Sort of a Krell mind boost. That's all I needed and I'm convinced that's all most people
