[GRASS-user] About the GRASS-GIS wiki manager

in my attempt to stabilize my course, as a user, in -- and out -- of the
OSGeo, and especially the GRASS-GIS community, I kindly request to take over
the GRASS-GIS wiki manager
The GRASS-GIS wiki is, undoubtedly, increasing both in size and quality of
content. However, there are still things that can be done for the much desired
"internal consistency" and its usefulness. Towards this goal, there is
unfortunately always lack of time to invest and ensure that the material:
- is presented in a clean and easy to read structure
- is up-to-date or if old but still useful, explicitly identified as "historic"
- protected by undesired noise (read: Spam or other irrelevant content)
Of course, the above points remind myself: I have several contributions in the
wiki which can, and should, be much improved :-p.
Therefore, it is reasonable, to me at least, that one or just a few community
member(s), not too busy involved in many other community-related tasks, will
take over this responsibility.
Unfortunately, I have no evidence to support my claim that one or a few
dedicated community member(s) will successfully move towards the premises of
consistency and quality. There is no mechanism, as far as my understanding
goes, to ensure that.
Towards this scope, I will try to invest some time during the week and work on
the wiki. My idea is to to engage in a slow but solid process. I will try to
prefer quality over speed!
Along with my request to participate as a wiki manager, I would like to have
some feedback and Ideas upon this. How can we improve the overall quality of
the GRASS-GIS wiki? Is there a (better) way to strive for a clean, easy to
read, consistent and high quality content?
Thank you, Nikos
