We did add the Wiki for this purpose, and are looking into ways to 
increase user contributions to it, but it should be a controlled system, 
i.e. we don't want people modifying the home page etc.

Submitting patches is and has always been possible, the whole website is 
in svn, http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/html .

If you need more permissions on the community site, i.e. change stuff, 
write content, translation, moderator please say so.

Realising this means we means to concentrate more on the web site, and 
a lot more, only after the functionality is there you get the benefits.

That is another issue that Lazarus people are also looking at.
