We're all for that. Such a project needs someone to pull it though. We
(the core devs) simply don't have time for it besides the normal
Wicket development, bookwriting, etc. If someone (you?) wants to start
that initiative... you can get access to wicket-stuff (maybe even
admin access if you plan on taking a project leader role) and off you
go! And of course, when such an initiative comes off the ground, we
(core team again) would be happy to support it where we can.
