1. Possibility of receiving a build (prior release) for documentation testing? This will help immensely to document the instructions, and usability. What do you think?
2. A monthly plan of activities or tasks that need to be addressed from the documentation team. Maybe a kanban board to enlist important items to complete? Volunteers can pitch in to take the task.

Topics and Discussion:
* Some issues in updating Guides
+ Image anchoring
+ AS_ CHARACTER
