Please wrap your lines around 72 chars or so. Wikis are good for group-developed documentation and similar. We used one extensively when we used a committee to rewrite the local LUG's bylaws and it was very helpful. I don't think Wikis are good for group discussion, however. For that I would fall back on a mailing list. Use something like Mailman that has archiving capability. For that same committee work, we also had a dedicated mailing list -- the two went hand in hand, and I don't think the wiki would have been nearly as useful without the mailing list. -Bill _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
