I'm happy to know someone likes the books :-)
Please notice that the content of this guide (TQSG) is really old... It
no longer works for current structure and definitely needs major update
first before publishing it... So do not waste your time to translate and

afaik, you need to join docs team [1] as you will be bridging trans team
and docs team (aka becoming docs team member as well). Then gain
necessary permission(s) from docs team [2]. Please notice that currently
docs team has the publishing issue, and I am not sure if it is worth for
you to be a publisher just now. I learned at FLOCK that docs team
currently is testing new tools for publishing. It might be good to wait
for it? I feel it is coming in next fudcon :-D
