I think each of us should announce on this mailing list when we intend
to work on a specific page so multiple people aren't making changes to
the same page, and give an expiration timer so whatever isn't completed
by that point, frees up the page to others on the team.

For example:

"Hi Team,
I'm going to spend some time over the next 6 hours (starting right now)
to clean up the _______________ page(s)."

That way we know that after 6 hours pass from the time they send the
message, any of the rest of us can review it, make suggestions, etc.

Just my thoughts.
