And I'm sure we all appreciate your efforts!  I certainly do.

Regarding using the wiki... I have mixed feelings.  Wikis are really, really 
good for some things.  Anything that's "how-to" based on technology (how to 
use SVN, CVS, etc.) seems like a reasonable candidate, because we get the 
advantages of peer review.

For things that describe policy, I don't think that's so great.  For policy 
(how to use SVN for Python development, because we have certain rules), I 
think we want to maintain strict editorial control.
