I'm a "pseudo self-taught" programmer and in particular I have no
accademic back ground.

As a result I do not understand most of the documentations produced by
the ocaml community which is very accademic.

Please notice that I do not mean that this is a bad thing, this is
just my feelings.

I added "pseudo" because I'm not really self-taught I've learn using
what's available on the internet, so the people who have given these
documentations on the internet taught me.

This particular point about the very accademic orientated state, I
have not felt it in other programming communities.

I was just willing to propose myself as a volunteer in case the ocaml
community would be willing to open the door to "non-accademic" people.

If the ocaml community prefers (for any reason) to remain accademic
only please ignore my proposition to be this volunteer.
