Hi :)

I realise you are not "head of the team" but you are excellent at co-ordinating 
effort and freeing people up so that they (Hal & Barbara and possibly others i 
don't notice) can get on with the heavy lifting.  And you are blatantly doing a 
lot of heavy lifting too.  Seems like good leadership to me.

I think i could re-organise the  "Get Help" web-page a bit if that's not too 
cheeky.  I think this order might be 'better'?

        * Accessibility information: 
        * FAQs: contains System requirements: 
        * Installation instructions: 

        * Documentation: 
        * Mailing lists: 
        * IRC channels: It might be good practice for me to do something radical like 
that. Or perhaps FAQs and Accessibility are usually at the end so people know 
where to look for them?

Regards from
Tom :)

Erm, well, I'm not the "head of the project" by any means, but I did a
lot of work on the site's pages and tend to fuss over them like a
mother hen.

Although I didn't write the "Why?" pages you're talking about,
Clayton. Sometimes we get volunteers who aren't mother-tongue English
speakers, and we don't turn down their contribution at all. We just do
extra proofreading and correction for them.

Someone had earmarked those pages to work on them, but that was some
days ago and I see they haven't started yet, so there's no reason why
you shouldn't jump in and start the ball rolling.

I created an account for you and gave you author permissions, and
mailed you the details off-list. Thanks for volunteering! :-)
