Oops, it was probably ill-advised for me to send this before we zeroed
in on the issue in IRC... I think I sent it mid-conversation without
realizing it was so finger-pointy.  I sometimes forget that not everyone
reads CVS and I could have let this slip by unattributed....  :-\

But in all seriousness, I thought it would be worthwhile to get other
people's take on a policy issue -- so I hope someone else comments
now! :-D  What I was *really* hoping is that we'd have lurkers on this
list who would think, "Hey, wiki editing! *I* can do that!", then clean
it up according to our guidelines, and everyone could go home happy.

Well, you're always proactively looking for ways to promote new content
and the work that people are already doing around the project, which is
a Good Thing.  Occasionally if we cast too wide a net, it's no crime.
I'd like more volunteers to be aware that if they keep their eyes open,
they can find plenty of content to work on that doesn't require amazing
deity-like superpowers.

Come on lurkers, help us out here!  Check out our general style
guidelines[1] and see what you can do to fix this page[2].
