-ates

Create, update, translate... all sorts of things that one can do with the KDE documentation. It needs to be written and maintained, localised, and fixed. (Contest: the one who brings the best synonym for "fix" that ends in -ate, gets cookies!)
But there's more. For example, "migrate". It's almost 1.6 release time, and the preparations for my part of the KOffice world domination (making the best office suite around requires making the best handbooks around, and we are going to do that *cough*) are slowly advancing. Not only do the manuals need some expanding for that, but the new framework that forms the solid base for KOffice 2.0 also requires rewrites of quite a lot of sections. I've taken up the task of coordinating this -- and hope to be coordinating a bunch of rocking authors soon :)
And there are more -ates. Lots of them. Let's find them and assimilate.
