One way to approach this problem would be to draft some rough docs that
try to capture the functionality without worrying about English content
or style.  Then you could post the rough draft somewhere, and ask for
someone from the docs mailing list to edit it.  My thought would be that
whoever took on the task would then do a rewrite, asking you questions
to fill in any details that aren't clear from the rough draft.

Thank, you, by the way, for all the work you are doing.
