[Wikipedia-l] Developers needed!

How would the articles / species directory entries differ?  Would the
species entry focus on genetic similarities between species, evolutionary
genealogy, or what?

I totally disagree; I am sure that a lot of information will be overlapping
and therefore, the two projects should remain connected. Nevertheless, a
species directory would serve a different purpose than the wikipedia as such
and have a significantly different structure (as seen in the draft at my
last e-mail) to allow highly specific search functions. 

I already got a lot of supportive e-mails by a range of people - and that is
eventually what counts for a wiki project, to my understanding. There is a
need for an extensive species directory, and I will keep asking for support!
