FWIW, I've had excellent luck with content addition on the Wiki, even
when I was being kind of incompetent and a pain in Skip and Paul
Boddie's butts.

I still add a fair bit of content daily.  It doesn't make the site
maintainers' jobs any easier; those people have been very helpful and
patient with me.  If the current discourse is constructive, please
forgive my interrupting.  Otherwise it might be a good idea to sleep
on it, step back, and identify where the best place to start is.

My own preference is to let Richard shape things a bit more (right
now, his doc is a start) and work with what he lays out.  No, I don't
have the skill set to do a lot of the heavy lifting, but I do have a
little skin in the game and have demonstrated some trainability.

Apologies if I've spoken out of turn.

Carl T.
