The best approach is to jump right in.  I suggest you start by making
some relatively small but self-contained changes, and submit them via
bugzilla or a phabricator reviews.  Mostly to get used to how the
process works, and make contact with other people that work on this area
of the docs.

I wouldn't worry too much about treading on anyone's toes -- there is
always more work to do than there are people to do it, so a motivated
volunteer is worth their weight in gold.  If someone already is drafting
some updates to this area, then they should respond either to your
e-mail or to any PRs or reviews you create.  Their likely response would
range from "Would you like to take over work on this?" to "Here's what I
have already.  How can we merge it with your changes?"

	Cheers,

	Matthew
