Hi Bruce,
I have been thinking a little about your suggestions, but I think I need a 
little help:

My idea was to write a kind of "draft-book" for the pages concerning 
kde-4.3.2. I would start explaining how to create a new user "kde4" ( 
following  "Getting Started/Build/KDE4.x" on KDE-Techbase ), then how to build 
"cmake", how to build "automoc" from CVN and step by step adding the needed 
Submission rules for hints says..." Hints should be reserved for things that 
cannot be included into the book. Hints that relate to installation of 
packages and which would easily fit into the book (usually the BLFS book) 
should be submitted to the relevant development list". 
So, having several pages in the mind, I feel more confortable ( and would 
prefer ) :

I am not familiar at all with this page.But  I think, I could apply the 
procedures for submitting KDE-TechBase pages. Is this a similar way ? Do I 
need a special authorization to edit this wiki's ?

In my opinion too dificult ( at least for me ), as new chapters have to be 
introduced that do actually not exist in the book.

Expecting your advice.
