As it happens I also was interested in Jono's LoCO team wiki page  
setup back before Christmas. I started to rework MOTU/ in that form  
but kinda got busy doing other things. Well, today I freshened it up  
and finished it off (at least enough to get everybody's input and  
contribution). The URL is

One thing to note is the Teams section. I just put all the MOTU teams  
that I saw had wiki pages. There are more teams that don't and some  
of those teams that do have wiki pages are kinda old and stale  
(Security and XFCE I think at least) so maybe we want to clean up our  
teams. Each team should have a LP team, wiki page, be on MOTU/Teams/  
and be on this new MOTU frontpage. I think we need to especially take  
care of any page that gets linked from the main MOTU page.

So, thoughts? Anything to add? subtract? change?
