Brock, what have you and your partner done so far with the users
guide? Have you completed any documentation for the panel yet? If you
can lend a helping hand (especially on docs for the panel plugins),
that would be great.

Also, is the Xfce Users Guide you're working on tutorial / how-to
based (like, a "How To Get [Insert Task Here] Done" approach)? Or are
you listing and describing functionality in a digestible way (like a
traditional reference manual)?

I'm sorry if that question is confusing (in its wording) or anything.
I'll try to explain it in a better way if you need me to.
