Luke's docs have been (very) useful to me.

I'm using it. (read only so far as I've not contruibtued anything useful
yet). I do agree that it's not well-strucutured and stuff is out of
date, but that's pretty-much true the world over in wikis, unless
$someone spends a _lot_ of time updating and merging and splitting to
keep things relevant and well-organised.

Yep, Some agreement of what should be where would defo be helpful and
there is clearly a lot that could be done to make things easier to find
without having to know an insider first (or where to look in this list).

I think IRC meetings would be useful. We could clearly lower the barrier
of entry a lot, but to some degree that's more to do with getting
support in the right places (e.g into mailine and distros) so things
work as they should without needing to know a pile of magic runes, than
about documenting all those magic runes..

In general weekends daytime is no use for me, but I'm not important
round here, so worry about people who are :-)
