We use the same issue tracker for code and documentation issues.  A lot of
the documentation issues have the keyword "documentation".  You can do a
query based on this.  For example:


If you want to fix something for which there is already a ticket, attach
a patch to the ticket, set the owner to no one, and add the "review"

You should also take a look at <http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/TwistedDevelopment>.

You might also want to drop by IRC and discuss what you have in mind.
