Hey Gerry, lovely to see you here.
We've been working on some technical documentation on the Phabricator
wiki, just to give it a spin. So far, the platform is working for us,
as Ubuntu's wiki has been too flaky to use for awhile. While you are
getting acquainted, you might give it a look and tweek it if you see
something that needs changing, or raise some questions if we've left
things unclear. You'll need a KDE identity (http://identity.kde.org)
to login to Phab.
See you in IRC!
