Help Wanted!!!

The documentation of GCC is spread on many pages and documents in GCC internal documentation, the wiki and the web. We need any help that we can get to collect, organise and update it. Below there are a number of links to the main documents we think could be useful. However, we need help to actually write those documents. A well-organised collection of links would be a start. Then the most important information from those links should be extracted and written in a consistent, easy-to-use-and-read manner. Check also the Uncategorized collection of related links.
