Eclipse documentation is of a pretty high quality, so I'm assuming there are
some paid writers and editors from member companies involved at some point
in the process. The Eclipse Corner Articles section could use their help,
especially for copy-editing new articles before they go up on the web site.
As it happens, there's one article at the copy-edit stage now and another in
the pipeline. Is there someone I can talk to for assistance?

know the truth - we stay up all night the day before the release and
write the doc. Maybe your perception of *high quality* relates to the
fact that for the most part, developers write the doc and not technical
writers <g> It's mostly accurate but far from a nice read!

Come on, we usually start writing doc at *least* 48 hours before the
release date :)
