> 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.
