As Curtis said in a previous mail, we are a small company, and we need 
your help in maintaining the wiki. I think Torfinn's suggestion is an 
excellent one, and I appreciate his suggestion and the immediate 
volunteering of some 5-6 people.

I will help support you in any way I can. Yes, we can absolutely set up 
a mailing list for you to coordinate amongst yourselves. I will also 
make myself more immediately available to the wiki editors, so that 
questions can be answered as rapidly as possible.

Wiki editors, do you have a request for the list name? How about 

This is very exciting. Many of us are frustrated by the wiki, but have 
lacked the time to fix it. I applaud you all.
