I'd say People observe what happens, since the announce, but probably  
before ...

To tell you more, I myself was - between 2006 and 2009 - very active  
on the wiki, initialy thought for developers purpose.

It was a very alive and uggly big bazaar, with a lot of ideas, tries  
and experiences. The Mac OS X native port was the best moment of the Community life (before people use the word, thinking  
to ''usefull idiots'' instead, to be honest ... ). There was nothing  
forced : we tried to organize, as well as possible, but concentrating  
on the content, not on the look. As an example, have a look at my  
users page, per see the activity it was : http://

But a day, some people decided to control the wiki  
(not only the wiki in fact). After that, people like me were upset,  
and simply definitily stopped to use it.

It would be great to not redo the same mistakes ...
