Are we allowed to run this in the zone?  It would be nice to get 
confirmation of this (how I don't know) as I don't think users will be 
happy if they contribute to it and then have the rug pulled from under 
their feet.

We need to have a strategy on how we are going manage reviewing, 
removing out of date content, and moving valid content from the existing 
Wiki.  A lot of the existing content is out of date or irrelevant.  We 
need to be careful that we don't end up having two half baked Wikis for 

Maybe ApacheCon would be a good opportunity to get everyone together and 
review the content in the existing Wiki.  IMHO, if we don't have 
accurate documentation for the 1.0 release then we should reconsidering 
the release (we kind of had an excuse for milestone releases, 1.0 should 
be a step up in quality from milestones.. users will have expectations 
of quality).

The site shows we are using an Evaluation License.  We should have a 
full license if we are relying upon it.

Is there a way we can set the footer on every page to say that any 
content contributed to the Wiki is under the ASL 2.0 license, with a 
link to the license, or have a notice on the edit page?  Documentation 
contributions should not be any different to code contributions.

I am not that familiar with Confluence, but it appears that the URL 
above hosts discussions.  Do we really want to encourage users to have 
discussions in places other than the mailing lists?  If we could import 
all of Geronimo's mail archives into its searchable mail interface... 
that sounds powerful as they say it is fully indexed and searchable with 
your other content.

IMHO we don't want users having to search in two different places to 
find information.
