You may want to look in the CDT forums, which is better suited
for new users.

Great.  On the CDT wiki, it mentions how to get started with
contributions to CDT:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Getting_started_with_CDT_development

You can also open bugs at
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs (under tools->CDT)
and contribute some documentation in whichever format
is easier and we can work together to include it with CDT.

Thanks!
