That should be our next objective. I like this approach:
starting from the people and the roles, adding processes.

Yes, good idea.

Would each of us please add stuff to the xdoc as it is
decided. We can always tweak the words later.

Notice that i added the "User" group.

That is not explicitly mentioned in the few other
projects guidelines that i looked at.

I wonder if we should dispense with that group and so
call the Contributers as Users. The only group of users
that we are really interested in, are the ones that do
contribute. The other type can just take what they get.

This also equates with the "user" mailing list, whereas
the term Contributer does not.
