I'll step up and volunteer to work on documentation.  I've been building 
up to working on coding (getting cygwin and the tools to compile for a 
start) since I'm a hacker first, but I am aware that too many open 
source projects are in dire need of documentatation and I'm getting 
sufficient number of technical challenges at work at this point.

Unless you prefer to have more people writing code, of course. 
 Christopher (or anyone), can you give me a ballpark idea of what needs 
to be done and where I might start?  I've spent a fair amount of time 
under the "Contributing" link, but it seems mostly to be about writing 
code.  Should I look at updating the user's guide?  The FAQ?  I've been 
using cygwin since about b17 and have been on and off the list, so I 
think I'm fairly qualified to help with the docs.  And I'll certainly 
consult the list or whomever I should consult about suggested updates 
and changes.
