Hello ,

i wonder two things:

first, since anyone who can sign in can edit/make contributions to the
wiki, is it really a necessity to join the team, introduce yourself,
and receive an assignment?
and second, i wonder what kind and how many 'some details' have to be
gone over by Jon or spyhawk in IRC before editing or adding to the
wiki...i mean, maybe i'm wrong but isn't IRC a rather transit,
perishable medium to be using to cover details so important they must
be covered prior to beginning?

anyway, shouldn't important details be covered in a persistent place
where all can be directed to so that they may be read and digested at
the helper's pace?

the reason i also quoted Rajko is because perhaps some of those
questions being fielded in IRC should find themselves stored in and
available to all in the same 'wiki team' place with instructions,
'some details' and a FAQ..

Well its good to see that you took an initiative to contribute to the
wiki, and its not necessary to join the team and introduction is
optional ( would be good if possible) .But yes until n unless you/anyone
doesnt have a task assigned or is unclear of the motive , i would
request not to start the work . As it would be the same thing like
earlier 'we would land up in a mess'.So its better to have the basic
idea on the 'how the things are carried out' or 'how it should be done'
and then start the tasks.The IRC is the place where the wiki team
members ( selected ones) will be conducting a mentoring session where
all the interested contributors will be invited so to make the entire
thing clear in there ( contributors) mind and then assigning task or any
other method ( Check out Rupert's mail on this, for more info).After
which certainly all the details or so called MINUTES will be presented
to the ML . So we would have a definite place for the data to be stored :) .
