and Brenda.
In fact she has been actively 'leading' since day 1, before any of  
these discussions started.

Brenda is our official editor.  She may not be coordinating, but she  
will be around, giving guidance even if needed.  We have an internal  
effort to get content out of the wiki into a static page on referencing development and how to get started with the  
platform.  Similar to: 
.   Brenda will lead this effort.  If there are any ideas on what  
should or should not be in this material please pass it on to her.  We  
see as an important place for newcomers to get a glimpse  
of what we are about, not just what we sell.  Adding community efforts  
from the wiki just seemed like the next logical upgrade.
