I wish that was true. I remember putting the Switch Guide template in
place 2-3 years ago and not much has come of it unfortunately. :-(

Contributing to the new migration docs shouldn't be hard: grab the
branch, edit the files and put forward a merge proposal. I'd hope most
authors familiar enough with Bazaar to compare it to other tools could
manage that pretty easily.

In a perverse way, adding a review process like this might even
encourage some contributors. Several people has contacted me offline
explaining that they are a bit afraid of editing our Wiki pages because
they don't feel "expert" enough to touch our public information without
someone checking their proposed edits first.
