I think the best way of submitting documentation changes would be to
file a bug in bugzilla under the product in question with a patch

You might also want to send an email to the gnome-doc list in order to
get someone from the doc team to review it for you.

I was thinking about this today (hey, I get bored working all day).  I
was planning on writing a page on for something like
this, a kind of "How to start working on documentation" that basically
outlined how to get the latest version of an app (ok, a link to the
jhbuild page ;) ), how to edit its docs and view your changes in yelp
and how to create / submit patches etc.

A docbook tutorial might be a bit too much, but a few links to docbook
references / tutorials might be useful to include too.

Anyway, just my thoughts.  I'll try and get a page up at some point soon
for all to marvel at.
