Contribute documentation as you learn

If you ask on the dev list for advice and are not pointed to the man page, FAQ or other such document for the answer, then chances are high that what you've just been taught should be documented.

Working on the documentation is a good way of keeping your momentum going(there is _always_ something to be done) and beginners often have a talent for flushing out problems,  because they only have the information that is accessible for them and usually they take instructions literally and think in a different way to experts.

This often is a quite valuable talent, so use it whilst it lasts.
