[Commons-l] Making Wikimedia Commons less frightening

Is there some sort of document that details what type of copyright stuff is necessary to be an admin? I think that the big point of cross appointed admins is that they are someone who people already know. This would prevent alienation and would allow for a logical translation.

The job of commons admin requires being a serious heavy-duty copyright
nerd, because that's what most of the work is. I'm not sure that can
be done in twelve hours.
