Hi Wendy! and Welcome!

Have you had a chance to create an account on the site, and take a look 
at the Editor's Guide? I just learned from Doug that the account 
confirmation mechanism was temporarily broken, so if you were unable to 
confirm, please try again.

It would be great if you could participate  in a doc sprint before 
taking on trying to organize one, so that you get a feel for what 
they're like. Unfortunately, we don't have confirmed plans for any doc 
sprints before October in Amsterdam. There are a few tentative plans 
that may yet firm up:

However, we are embarking on a series of online events we're calling 
"Web Platform Wednesdays":
Our first attempt at this will be tomorrow:
I know it's short notice, but if you have some time to pitch in, that 
would be a great way to get your feet wet. We'll have folks on hand in 
IRC to help guide the process, so you can ask any questions that you have.

Regarding running doc sprints, we have a few recommendations, but we 
need to do more knowledge-capture:
Peter Lubbers has talked about putting together a "Doc sprint in a box" 
set of resources for doc sprint organizers, but I don't know how far 
along that effort is. (PING: Peter?)
