Welcome Chris;

Unfortunately the documentation effort has been stalled for quite a
while now for a number of reasons. Hopefully having a volunteer with
extensive technical writing experience can help jump start this effort.

The original intent was to Redo the 4.X user documentation from scratch
on our MediaWiki site under the ALV2 License. Because of the difference
in License from the OpenOffice.org documentation we can not just update
the older documentation for version 4.

The current version 4 User documentation is linked  at
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/UserGuide there is also a
status document at
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/UserGuide/Status.

Your thoughts on what can be improved and your contributions to the
documentation as it stands would be greatly appreciated.

I am also in Massachusetts. I live in Palmer, just east of Springfield
in Western MA.

Regards
Keith McKenna
