Well, I probably agree with you, more because, evolution is better
than revolution as general principle. 

Anyway, I've been thinking about 1.1.5.x for a time, so I'll try
to post a list of proposed contents rather sooner than later, setting
aside the more revolutionary approach.

I was trying to explain that maybe it's scary to offer help, but
people tend to think that "oh, translating. I could do that", or
"writing docs, I think I could explain this little thing". 

Ok. In other words: for my it's scary to offer help, but I tend
to think... ;D

But yes, documenters as a category maybe it's too much.

I thoght right side was the portion we see easier, so main content
should be there. But, this is just an opinion.

Don't worry. If I were to do it, it couldn't be too elaborate ;D
