Subject Re: JIRA for documentation ?
Date Sat, 03 May 2008 18:08:10 GMT
Hi,

Non-committers who want to contribute documentation via the wiki just have
to sign the CLA and fax it.
No big deal, it only took me 5 minutes. Writing good documentation is harder
IMO :-)

I agree that having two wiki's would be a very bad idea.

regards,
Maarten
