Tsk tsk. I did mention that I thought this should be on local
projects. Make this local. make this fun. Make this entertaining!

"You have three weeks to make sure this page is the most comprehensive
page of all the projects. Here are the questions, we need your
answers.". Make it translation of the week, interwiki of the week,
best practices of the week, collaboration of the week!

Meta, unfortunately, is not a good place for this, it's too "meta" for
something so "local". Meta however, should be the place where one wil
conduct the comparison.

Yep, I understand. Start with making sure you don't revert to
acronyms. Frankly, I only learned what RfA was not so long ago
myself... ;-)
