Re: "Cwiki is a mess, but it works."

As a new contributor, and having spent a few days in the wiki, I completely
agree with this statement.

Given that we have just achieved a significant milestone, we should take a
few moments to perform some housekeeping.

We should encourage all disciplines to review their wiki content and
archive where appropriate.

The cleaner the wikis, the clearer our mission and tasks at hand. Such
clarity will reduce the barriers to entry and make it easier for new and
existing contributors to reach in, understand our mission and contribute.

Paulo, will you drive this activity?

For my part, I will be refreshing the UX project wiki.

Regards,
Kevin
