If I understand correctly the main scope of UW is ..
<quote (taken from our website.)>
Ubuntu-Women is a team functioning under Ubuntu to provide a platform
and encouragement for women to contribute to Ubuntu-Linux, a Debian
based free and open-source GNU/Linux software. Our main role will be
along the lines of supplementing and being the stepping stone toward
the larger Ubuntu-Linux world

FWIW, we dont restrict  membership on the basis of gender or any other
criteria for that matter. So how does any project undertaken by UW not
satisfy the above?

I am not sure I understand. As mentioned earlier we have no rules for
participation. So how does using the wiki "tie it exclusively to UW" ?

Does anyone feel that having our wiki undermines our contribution
upstream in some way ?
