Except most people should know how I feel about Wiki's by now. A
bulleted list of FunnyCapitalization does not make good content
I stand by my suggestion to quickly glance over PHP.net.
I'd like to see Wiki's role on Zope.org minimized. If someone else
wants to run a large Zope focused wiki (I'm not sure if ZWiki.org fills
this role, but it's one that could), I think it's better left to people
who are comfortable with the Wiki way. Personally, I haven't had a
single positive Wiki experience yet. And I've been using them ever
since they day Ken Manheimer and Jim Fulton went gaga over them at Zope
Corp a few years ago. I know they work for other people, but they
still don't work for me. Most Wiki's I've seen just seem like places
where tiny bits of anti-narrative content goes to live forever.
I'll take on Wiki gardening if I have to, but the words that tend to
fly out of my mouth when doing so could get me kicked out of the state
of Utah :).
And right now, I am swamped under with way overdue documentation work
for another project, while still trying to maintain other zope.org
responsibilities. I may have to step away from all of these
discussions for a couple of days because I've written more email than
documentation in the last few days. But this is such an important
discussion that it's hard to stay away from. :\
