Can we identify specific tasks that interested volunteers can pick up?

Initial draft:

- Respond to bug reports as they come in
- Liaise with translators
- Add content about <specific feature> from the <1.8/1.9/1.10/1.11> release
- Bring the book up-to-speed with _all_ new features since 1.8 or 1.9 (?)
- Go through the issue tracker backlog (is there one?)

Thanks for all your book work over the years!
