True. It often has such a connotation and it might deter people. Though
in my proposal the sub menus are clearly visible so they should still
understand. 'Troubleshooting' would be nice but it already refers to the
FAQ-O-Matic troubleshouting section...

What about 'Help Wanted'?
I think it pretty much expresses what we want and is a bit stronger than
just 'Contribute' which should please Andreas<g>.
