are really really important and worth the extra(?) bit of time setting up 
a web-based multi-user collaboration system. There is no reason our notes
should be, effectievly, hidden on a server only accessible via an 
application that few people know about. I do feel it is important to be 
able to give someone a simple URL to view some simple text about 
something very important to the development of Ubuntu.
