Re: Google Season of Docs

I think this would be a great idea.  Most of the Octave manual was written a long time ago, and while it hasn't gone out of date, it wouldn't hurt to re-read it and freshen it up.  Also, we have a format for documenting functions, but not all docstrings have been updated to use it.  Even simple things like adding @seealso crosslinks in the documentation between related functions would be an useful task.

See forwarded message below from GSOC regarding the Google Summer of Docs they started last(?) year.  I don't know if that's something that Octave would be interested in participating in. 

"Season of Docs is a Google program that fosters collaboration between open source projects and technical writers. Details are on our website:  "

I see things ranging from beginner guides, to tutorials, to specific function documentation, to rescoping the full document set.
