Thanks for the welcome Matt. (no pun intended)

Perhaps another group (marketing? development?) has this already. In my
experience it can be useful for building consensus about the appropriate
content, detail and complexity of docs. If we all have a different user
in our minds eye, consistency will be difficult to maintain. Also if
there are distinct types of users it may help inform the documentation

Does anyone else think such a doc may be helpful? If so I can rough
something up to open the discussion. Feedback?

Otherwise, I'm installed with gnome so I'd be happy to help on this,
although I am very new to linux. The style guide looks interesting in as
much if it is going to be used, probably best to get it out as quickly
as possible. I can also wiki around a bit.
