Would Gcc internals documentation count or is it more for a whole
project documentation work? I probably missed the thing about this in
London since i had to leave on the Sunday morning.

I am kind of interested but i am unsure what kind of documentation
would be appropriate i've spent the last few days working on some
internals documentation on and off so its kind of fresh in my mind.
