Welcome!!!. Well the Gtk# documentation docs reside in the gtk-sharp cvs
module in folder gtk-sharp/doc/en/. The Gtk namespace is the most
documented right now but still has like 178 docs ready to take on.
I have created a TODO file inside the Gtk folder that has a up to date
list of missing docs, so you can choose one from there to start
Some links of interest:


Editing: mostly I use vi and sometimes gedit 2.4 but the new monodoc
release has a editing feature that is really nice.
Validating: xmllint (form validator: found in libxml2 package),
valdoc(real validator: found in monodoc module inside doctools)
Create: We have a doc-updater but is used by Duncan Mak or John Luke
when the are new changes in Gtk# API or to aggregate new documentation.

Advice: Look to the already made documentation to have a feel of it. I
will recommend to look to Application.xml (John Luke), Button.xml
(Duncan Mak) and Menu.xml (me).

If you got any other question or want more advice please don't hesitate
to post.
