New Documentation section in Forums/Open Source (was Re: wait with messages)

As promised, thanks to Heather's work in helping me sort out some PHPBB 
permissions issues, we now have a forum for Documentation in the Open 
Source section of the forums:
<http://forums.runrev.com/viewforum.php?f=83>

One way I see this as becoming a productive working group is for 
proposals for documentation enhancement to be explored in the section 
there labeled "Brainstorms", and when they become refined to the point 
of being actionable they get elevated to the "Projects" list below it.

Ideally each project would have a team of people in a position to carry 
it through, perhaps with a team leader to facilitate whatever 
coordination may be needed among team members and the relevant RunRev staff.

As your Community Manager, I'm at your disposal to help remove any 
obstacles you may encounter along the way which impair successful 
completion of Documentation projects.  If resources to complete a 
project, whether code or human, are needed from the core dev team at 
RunRev, please let me know so I can be sure to discuss that with the 
team at first opportunity.
