Subject Re: [Proposal] Move Wiki Access Requests somewhere
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2016 09:50:36 GMT
My 2 cents:

There is no solution to the extra traffic on this list.  Access to
confluence or an extra list would still need to be granted to avoid spam,
and people who don't know where to ask are going to ask on the incubator
list no matter what you do.  Making the process more complex or less
intuitive will probably actually increase the traffic on this list.

Still, I'm for moving future incubator reports to confluence.  Editing in
confluence is easier and more appealing. I don't know what everyone else is
doing, but Fineract has generally prepared their report in confluence and
then copied it over.  Copying over is obnoxious, because you have to redo
the formatting.  If the target document were in confluence, the formatting
could be copied with the text.

The current situation is annoying but not the end of the world.

Greets from the Voreifel, Germany,
