Sounds good.

Absolutely. We have tried to 'fix docs' before, with bad results. I see
only one solution to deal with our resources reasonably: dissect the
MOTU wiki pages into sections of interest and function. 

My proposal:
      * MOTU: carefully chosen MOTU docs (things as MOTU/Meetings,
        MOTU/Council, etc.) - things that have a meaning and are well
      * UbuntuDevelopment: process docs
      * PackagingGuide: packaging information

We simply can't afford to try to update documentation in various places.
We need definite guides and definite places. 

Last time I counted we had 
      * four wiki docs about 'merging with Debian': all of them
      * at least six or seven pages with 'packaging tips'
      * etc

We should not drop information, but we should aggregate in one place
with a name that makes sense and is likely to stay around.

Have a nice day,
