As I explore the N-L portions of the OOo website the diversity of and facets to this global
effort is amazing. You have played a huge role.

I think a summary / taxonomy of the real global ecosystem would be a helpful history to have
available to AOOo. Is this something you could start on the Wiki?

The N-L sites are an area where AOOo is on the cusp of deciding which ones to archive until
people show up and which ones have volunteers who wish to participate.
