Besides the overall team leaders (see the main Documentation Team page), the Documentation Team relies on subject-area coordinators and mentors to help guide contributors. See below for a list of the current mentors, and scroll down to the bottom for a description of the job. If you'd like to be listed here, you can either edit the page and add yourself, or contact the Documentation Team leaders to discuss it (the Documentation Team page tells how to contact the team leaders).

There are also related working groups organized around various Documentation topics, which anyone can join.
