I suggest you start with this, using the roundup issue tracking system
to submit documentation bugs (the mailing list archives have a good list
of things you should include in the report, IIRC by Mary)

I feel most of the efforts that have gone this way have ended up dying
quietly with nothing much achieved, and more to the point, with no value
gained by the Twisted or Nevow projects.

Yes please.

That might work too, but please try to get it integrated into twisted
early (being a draft is no reason not to be part of the project), and
make sure people on the mailing lists see your open questions.

Thank you very much for your efforts. (Thank you even more if something
real comes out of this ;)
