Dennis E. Hamilton commented on COR-29:
---------------------------------------

Here are some sites with coverage and organizations that might inspire our thinking

https://tails.boum.org/contribute/index.en.html
  And other information about this particular project that shows different avenues

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Git_For_LibreOffice_Developers
  As a reminder for matters to cover, perhaps at better separation of levels, with regard
to Git usage by newcomers to Corinthia, to ASF projects, and possibly to open-source development.

  Interesting not just from its suggestions, but as a key to the kind of information that
needs to be readily available in a form that relates the specifics of contributing to Corinthia,
with particular attention to the cross-platform aspects and how one can work on a particular
platform/configuration and contribute properly to the cross-platform success.

 I have mixed feelings about this kind of operation but there are some principles that might
be very adaptable.  This is a detour into principles that are beyond the theme of COR-29.
 The homage to HyperCard in the blog turned my head.  This page https://github.com/LightTable/LightTable
is a source of ideas and, for me, demonstrates how complexity remains our demon, especially
when our meant-to-be-simple abstractions leak like crazy.

> I have been collecting samples of web sites and related information that has appealing
approaches to aspects of community support that may be adaptable for us.
> This is an open-ended task with the JIRA issue used as a collection point for contributions
via comments.
> I can imagine that a wiki would be good for this but that's sort of a chicken-egg problem,
since organizing a wiki is something to collect information about.
