I would prefer to improve and extend the existing documentation rather
than to fork it...

please everyone interested in contributing to the existing openSUSE
documentation or to Lessons for Lizards (cookbook) come to the
opensuse-doc mailinglist to discuss details!

Well, up to now there hasn't been a need to open our documents to
contribution, because simply no one has asked for it. But as I pointed
out in another post, everything has already been set up on Berlios, so
we can make our sources available in short time.

As for the "how", it is basically (the instructions are 3 years old) the
same that applied to the Lessons for Lizards project.

http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Lessons_for_Lizards

See the "Getting help" section for details.

As a quick start, if ppl are interested, we could revive the LfL project
on Berlios. Could be ready some time next week.

Lately we have been working on an automatic Book Building software with
a virtual web based library called openSUSE Book Builder. That would
come in handy when having a community book project ;-). Everyone
interested please come to our talk at the conference:
