Has anyone volunteered to do tech writing for the GNU folks? I volunteered
about a year ago (I haven't written too many things and I thought it would be a
good way to get experience). After several weeks, someone replied, and they
didn't seem too enthusiastic about me volunteering. So I sent another letter
and never heard from them again.

Anyone else have different experiences with them? Perhaps they look at
volunteers as "you get what you pay for."
