This is very interesting - something we should be looking at closely.
Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of exams & can't give it much attention
until next week. Perhaps someone else would like to take this on?

A discussion has started here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#Wikidoc.org The person who runs wikidocs is interested in discussing things further. http://www.wikidoc.org/index.php/User_talk:C_Michael_Gibson

>From the feedback regarding Wikibooks' last meeting, it was
generally felt to be worthwhile, so I'd like to have another
meeting on Thursday April 9 at 21:00UTC. That's 5PM in
Philidelphia, for example.
Once again, I've started a section on
this session with 2 topics to discuss: changing FlaggedRevs
configuration and coordinating feedback about Collections.
Hopefully people will be able to make it, especially those who
couldn't last time. We'll be meeting in #wikibooks on
irc.freenode.net as usual. Anyone who's interested can come -
listen, participate, whatever!
See you there
