Please don't make pronouncements like that, smiley or no.
Do you really not know about this?
According to the signup page, 10 chapters are done,
6 in progress, 10 unclaimed, the remaining 4 assigned but unknown status.
Speaking for myself, I did some work on mine this week. 

We need more volunteers. Any chance of doing a chapter, Chris?

Can't speak for the ZDG though. Anyone?
