I don't know it, too. In the meanwhile I've noted that DebianWomen are also on
Alioth, so I've joined the team. :D

How is organized the site? 
How we can refresh it a little?
Because - I hope it not sounds offensive - it give an impression of ...
outdated contents. The first time I was there I thought the project was

I've received another mail with a proposal for a proofread from Lisi, so you
can coordinate your efforts against my grammar super-errors ;))
Lisi, come and enjoy the list!

Oh thanks.
Thanks, thanks, thanks.
For every time I feel myself ridicoulus and inadequate when I try to explain
an idea or a simple fact or even a joke and I can't.
That link is fantastic.
I'm shy and insecure, but I've decided to try and try... and communicate.
And I know many persons - with great socials and computing skills - who
don't contribute because of their "poor english". We, italians, are so

I think I'll translate in Italian that article.

IMO it could be more useful update it, maybe adding a note (maybe in a box?) explaining that the
original document was the result of a course held by $name on $date regarding
$argument and it was updated by $second_author.
We need to decide a line: 

1. we want to use the wiki and subpages /courses/ to
archive past-event-lessons as they are (so they're untouchable and unchangeble) but IMHO this
is against the nature of a wiki itself (cause everyone can pass on those page and
can update it in contrast with our editorial line) and I don't think that wiki
admin will be happy with this decision; so if we want to take this lessons as
historical document unchanged the solution (I think) can be archive it on the

2. we cant share them with all the users of the wiki (an audience wider than the
websites visitors) but - to make them useful - we need to update (not forget
to mention the original author and date of lesson).

Thank you so much for your contribute!
