[open-data-manual] How do I suggest things for the manual?

Okay - I found the page about this in the manual. My big question from this is - I'm assuming that the manual is about how to do things. Where in the internet do I find lists of where to do them (e.g. those lists of catalogues).
And now for question 2). I'm also looking online for a list of all the open data communities out there. The best I can find (given that I've not been around this space for a while) is the camps list from the December Open Data Day, at http://www.opendataday.org/wiki/Main_Page - is there anywhere else that lists who's doing what around the world? I got asked yesterday if I knew of any groups in Burkina Faso and Guatemala, and couldn't come up with a definitive answer, for example.
PS sorry Tim, I know we're mid-crisismapping-deployment, but I thought it best to get these thoughts down before they escaped me.

I've been a little distracted of late, but am looking into open data sources today (we have a set of developing country data peeps in the house who are asking about them).
1) Where are the major catalogues for open data (i.e. where are the lists of which countries and orgs have open data and where), and would it be useful to add a section to the manual on the lines of "tell people around the world about your data", listing those catalogues (and email lists, e.g. the OKFN one) with suggestions on how to publicise (e.g. useful twitter hashtags etc).
I'll get to 2) later :-)
