Agreed, forgive my newbiness, but I am learning quickly - that is why I
sent this out over the mailing list first.  I will move the info from
the Help site to the Wiki site this evening, then set the redirect.

On the topic of teams, the Ubuntu Forums Beginners Team has their wiki
area at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Beginners (primarily under /Team)
This clearly conflicts with separation of Help and Wiki.  Though I did
not establish this area on the Help wiki (its existence predates my
involvement with that team), I have been its maintainer for a few months
now and have done extensive work on it.  Since it is rather well
established there, I propose leaving it, unless you feel strongly
otherwise.  I just thought I should run that past you.
