Just an FYI. virtually no one at OKF but...like...me, and a couple of 
our 30 some staff members actually use the wiki (and it's really only 
for some HR documents). So, it'll most likely be left untouched or 
unmaintained, by anyone. I just mention this because at our recent staff 
summit we did a survey and everyone agreed that the wiki isn't the 
primary spot where we work.

We're actually even considering making the wiki internal because it's 
not fruitful for anyone outside of the internal community. So..don't 
expect much to happen with that wiki space.
