I just updated 
and added links to pads for each article.

I'd like to give "assigned authors" some time to create the backbone for 
their article before others start contributing or editing them too much. 
If you're going to do big changes, please be in touch with the assigned 
authors and ask what their original idea was.

Generally, use common sense and if in doubt, step down and ask for 
consent and/or assistance.

If you need any guidance with the articles generaly, you can be in touch 
with me or Elizabeth and we'll sort things out.
