Hello! I am a technical writer who has been in the business in various ways
for over 15 years. I am currently unemployed and am considering contributing
my documentation skills to an open source project. Has anyone does this? If
so, what is the best way to find a project that needs help? I did some
googling but didn't come up with anything very useful yet. Any information
would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
