[tor-dev] Help wanted: write user manuals on digital signatures and open proxies

Hi everyone,

I am currently working on a rewrite of the short user manual [1]
(relevant tickets are: #5571, #5811, #8003, #8779). The next version
of the manual will (hopefully) be easier to read and translate, and it
will also contain an updated list of frequently asked questions. I
hope to have a version out for review next week.

The old version of the manual contains pieces about verifying digital
signatures and using open proxies. A number of people have suggested
that we either move these pieces into an advanced section of the
manual, or that we take them out completely. I intend to take these
pieces out completely and suggest that we write separate manuals for
them. The new manuals should be easy to read and translate, small
enough to send via email, and be in a format which does not get
blocked by most email providers (e.g. xhtml).

If you would like to help with these two manuals, please take a look
at Trac tickets #9883 and #9884.
