Ya, maybe... I just really noticed it though ;-)

I don't think this is a great idea.  I would rather see the samples  
in the GMOxDOC* spaces.  I don't see why they need to live in their  
own space.

It looks like the bulk of the content in this space is not really  
meant for non-commiters to update anyways.  Besides, I think we only  
want *one* space which is for traditional wiki-style user driven

No, this is one space that is a space because it really needs its own  
namespace for pages.  The other spaces (GMOxSAMPLES and GMOxPMGT)  
have limited content and don't really need a separate namespace at all.

I was just listing all of the spaces we had... no intent to collapse  
them all, just showing what we have currently.

Aye, and I think that is acceptable and expected.

Yes, nuke this if you can... though I recall you had issues removing  
it before?
